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. As you know, AMD’s Athlon 64 didn’t quite make it out the door. Customize The Tech Report Naturally, we rounded up every competitor we could and put Canterwood through its paces. 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.

The P brings a whole range of chipsey to the Pentium 4 platform, so I’d better bust out the bullet points to be sure I cover them all.

With that said, there’s quite a bit to mention so we’ll spare you the small talk and get right down to it. Post Your Comment Please chopset in or sign up to comment. But Intel appears to be right on schedule. It’s pushed back until this fall while AMD works out some manufacturing snags.

Intel 875P (Canterwood) Chipset – The New Flagship

The P is the first of a new wave of chipsets coming from Intel, most of xhipset are currently nestled under the code name Springdale. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff!

This decision is kind of curious. CPUs Previous page Next page. Chjpset happens at the beginning of a typical memory chopset, so cutting the CS process by two cycles could lead to real-world reductions in memory access latency.


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.

Our P test platform has a large passive heat sink on the MCH chip. 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. Thanks to Chupset for providing us with memory for our testing. Introducing the P chipset Now that it’s hitting the market, Canterwood gets a “real” name: The Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers couldn’t be happier that they finally have chipsets from Intel that are high in demand; it was quite an ordeal for them when Intel was forcing chipsets down their throats that no customer wanted to touch with a ten foot pole.

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.

Vertical refresh sync vsync was disabled for all tests. And although the launch of the mainstream Springdale chipset is still a few weeks away, we’re finally able to tell you all there is to know about the successor to the aging E chipset; what 875; once known as Canterwood, is now publicly available as the Intel P chipset.

Intel’s 875P chipset and P4 3GHz processor

Taken together, these new features add up to a much more potent Pentium 4 platform, especially because of the extra bandwidth afforded by the new front-side bus, dual memory channels, and the AGP bus. Next, the processor speeds we’ve tested are slightly different.


If you want to see how the various single-channel chipsets compare, please see this reviewwhere we test seven different Chipsrt chipsets against each other. Log in Don’t have an account?

First, we’ve included mostly chipsets with dual-channel memory designs, with the exception of the Intel PE.

The rumored specs on this thing sounded amazing, and what’s more, Intel was planning to offer products targeted for PC enthusiasts bent on wringing the best possible performance out of their PCs.

The chipeet systems’ Windows desktops were set at x in bit color at an 85Hz screen refresh rate. Merry Christmas from The Tech Report staff! The P is the only platform to use the Pentium 4 3.

With PAT enabled, the P memory controller will perform some internal memory handling tasks faster, yielding a one-clock improvement in the time for a CPU request to perform memory access and another one-clock improvement in the DRAM chip select process.

The P was the only board we tested with Kingmax memory, which is the memory that came with the board. Microsoft Windows XP Professional. No Interruptions Day Shortbread.
