More details about Intel Canterwood and Springdale-PE/G chipsets

Itís no surprise that Intel is to release four new chipsets, including Canterwood, Springdale-PE, Springdale-G, Springdale-P with 800MHz FSB for new Pentium 4 processors within the half-year. According to provisional data, the current Intel 845 logic will be actual up to Q3 2003 only and Intel 850E is, most likely, to leave the stage even earlier. So whatís to replace them?

  800MHz FSB DDR400 Int. graphics Dual DDR Processors
Canterwood + + - + Pentium 4 800MHz FSB
Springdale-G + + + + Pentium 4 800MHz FSB
Springdale-PE + + - + Pentium 4 800MHz FSB
Springdale-P - - - + Pentium 4 533MHz FSB

As you can see, three leading chipsets will support 800MHz FSB and DDR400. Springdale-P, supporting 533MHz FSB and DDR333, will be aimed at the low-end market. All four chipsets will feature dual-channel DDR interface.

At the first sight, Canterwood and Springdale-PE seems identical, but itís not so. Canterwood, provided with all features possible, is positioned as the workstation and high-end PC logic. Itís known that inner circuitry of Springdale-G, Springdale-PE, Springdale-P, resembling each other, greatly differs from Canterwood´s. Another difference is the Turbo mode, of the latter, that, according to unconfirmed information, is optimal for simultaneous use of 800MHz FSB processors and dual-channel DDR400.

Unlike Canterwood, that, according to provisional data, will only support dual-channel DDR, Springdale series will support single-channel as well, resembling the current i845. according to PC builders, Springdale-G/PE will support only dual-channel DDR333 (thus stressing the Canterwood´s dual-channel DDR400 Turbo mode). Though, again, itís unconfirmed.

Canterwood´s wholesale price is promised to be about $50, that will naturally position it as an expensive solution.
