Intel to announce Canterwood on April 15

According to InfoWorld, Intel might officially announce i875 chipset (Canterwood) next week. So, the company scheduled a conference in Taipei to April 15 to announce the chipset alongside 3GHz Pentium4 with 800MHz FSB.

So, 875 will be the first chipset to support 800MHz FSB. The second, Springdale, should be announced in May. Besides 800MHz FSB Springdale will feature 1Gbps Ethernet adapter.

Its interesting that according to some sources, 2.6 and 2.8GHz Pentium4 with 800MHz FSB have already appeared in Tokyo due to connections with an Intel employee.

And something about memory. It seems DDR333 will become the past once chipsets are released, as there are already lots of DDR400 modules in the market. Still I wonder if they are seamlessly compatible with next-week novelties...

Besides, how will this shift prices for older DDR266 and DDR333? Below is an example for DDR266 daily change almost similar in all markets:



Price, yesterday

Price, today



512Mb DDR DIMM 184 pin



256Mb DDR DIMM 184 pin


According to market players, traders will start to get rid of DDR266 and DDR333 chips and modules, which would result in inevitable price reduction. So, if you are planning an upgrade, you should wait until next week.
