I'm pretty sure P57 was indeed canceled.

p57 was the braidwood update to P55 iirc, it was canceled. The next update hasn't been announced but I would suspect it will be a USB3 and SATA6 chip, and that will probably include an updated chip for x58 with those features too.

Some boards already have USB3/SATA6 thanks to add-on controllers. So if one really wants one, you can get it already.

add on controllers kinda suck, having usb and sata 3 on the chipset is much better.

I know they do, and they eat up PCI-E lanes as well.

And the chipset you're thinking of is probably the H57.

Right, but those are like you said, Add-In chips, not built into the Southbridge or northbridge for 'native' support. Slight difference, but for Intel its a huge difference. Generally speaking when Intel makes it available in their chipsets that is when companies actually start producing said products with those features. SATA 1.5 is a perfect example of this around the P865 chipset, circa 2003, iirc. Add-in cards were around for nearly 8 months before Intel released it built into the chipset. Then once it was, Hard drive companies released SATA drives very shortly afterwards.

That is a totally separate technology called Moorestown, where Intel is moving a GPU on-die with the CPU. It will require its own PCH, which iirc is called Lincroft or Larcroft or something. Edit: Sorry, thats the handheld internet devices SOC intel is working on.

The other one with GPU+CPU was scrapped for the time being, it was called Larrabee

uh... dont think so. Im sure that the new 32nm i3 and i5 dual cores have a built in gpu.
