Dell returns to the stock market after six years. Embracing DDR SDRAM is something we never thought we would see Intel do, especially considering their stance on the technology in the past, thus we were quite surprised when we heard of the possibility last year at Computex. Naturally, we rounded up every competitor we could and put Canterwood through its paces. Neutronbeam Zak, you know you can’t validate any of the above details without first throwing The Intel that is today releasing the P is very different from the Intel that we remembered forcing Rambus DRAM on the market in the days of the chipset.

Intel P (Canterwood) Chipset – The New Flagship

First, we’ve included mostly chipsets with dual-channel memory designs, with the exception of the Intel PE. This decision is kind of curious. All the tests and methods we employed are publicly available and reproducible. Thanks to Corsair for providing us with memory for our testing.

Core-logic chipsets may not seem too sexy to the wider world, but we hardware geeks know better. The PE won that comparison outright, which earned it the chance to be our single-channel P4 chipset representative today.

Intel’s new Chipsset bus-ready Pentium 4 3. But Intel appears to be right on schedule. Microsoft Windows XP Professional. Read on to see what we found. We’ve been paitiently awaiting the arrival of Intel’s dual-channel DDR chipsets ever since we first heard the names Springdale and Canterwood almost a year ago at Computex in Taipei. What Intel is doing, in fact, is “binning” its chips, chkpset like it does its processors. Post Your Comment Please log in or sign up to comment.

Single page Print Test notes You’ll want to note several things about our test system configurations below. The P is the only platform to use the Pentium 4 3. Finally, the Gigabyte motherboard we selected as our SiS representative turned out to be a bit frustrating, because its BIOS didn’t offer manual memory tuning options.

In all likelihood, the P silicon will come from the same wafers and essentially be the same chips as Intel’s upcoming Springdale chipset, but Springdale will be a cheaper, higher-volume product. We tested the rest of the P4 chipsets with a P4 3.

No Interruptions Day Shortbread.

Intel emphasizes that P chipsets are tested rigorously, at full operating speed, for their ability to run with PAT enabled, so Canterwood motherboards ought to be plenty stable under normal operating conditions. They’re gonna need it. Here’s my best guess about what’s happening.

The P is the first of a new wave of chipsets coming from Intel, most of which are currently nestled under the code name Chipsett. Vertical refresh sync vsync was disabled for all tests.

It’s as if Intel were gearing up to fight a processor with an on-chip memory controller or something, innit? Just over a week ago, a Canterwood sample platform arrived at Damage Labs, ready for testing. The next milestone that’s set with the P is that Intel has finally released a chipset to push RDRAM out of their product lineup; not that there’s anything wrong with RDRAM these days, but the fact of the matter is that DDR is far more plentiful and thus much more attractive to end-users and resellers.

I expect these things will be worked out by RAM and mobo makers over time, but I thought it was worth noting. Intel Application Accelerator 2.
