Intel: Chipsets

Hi,

This is related to Intel.
This is related to Intel 4th Generation core i3 and Pentium processor.
I want to know the chipset motherboards which will support the above processor.
I tried to google it, but still get confused
Would you give confirmation which Chipsets they are talking about.
Thank you

It depends on which family they are... Intel has made at least 4 different familes of i3 (Clarkdale, Haswell, SandyBridge and IvyBridge) that I know of... possibly/probably more.

If you go to http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/ and click on Intel in the Chipsets category, that should take you to http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Intel_(chipsets)/index.html with chipsets on the left and what CPU's they support on the right.

r.e. "... It depends on which family they are "  ==>  Already answered in the question :-)

From the question:  ".. This is related to Intel 4th Generation ..."

That means Haswell -- period.

So for desktop boards the B85, H81, H87, Q85, Q87, and Z87 chipsets

and for server boards the C222, C224, and C226 chipsets.

Note that server boards generally don't support the i5's and i7's => but do support the i3 and Pentium processors you asked about.

A much simpler way to confirm compatibility is to look at the socket => the 4th Gen chips use Socket 1150 ... any motherboard with that socket will be using a compatible chipset :-)
