not quite finally.... ;)
Intel has "seen some anomalies, and we're going to put (the 3GHz Pentium 4) on ship hold, temporarily," said George Alfs, a company spokesman. "We're investigating (the problem) and hope to be shipping soon."
I literally fried my motherboard, so i'm currently in need of a new mobo/cpu; this looks very tempting :) though I'm itching for some dual cpu madness....hmm....

AKA CANTERWOOD or 875P chipset. came out 2 days ago.
it runs at 800MHz FSB, up from 533MHz. The kicker is the dualchannel DDR400 support!!! up from DDR266 - it even skipped DDR333!
now THIS is what ive been waiting for - time to pony up the moolah for a good Asus board and that extra corsair XMS PC3200 stick.
o a side note, its paired up with the release of the new 3.0Ghz P4 chip, at 200Mhz FSB, which puts to use the DDR400 specs. Thing is you have to have this processor to get DDR400 performance, otherwise it drops to DDR333 at the most.
even so, im excited with this chipset - it extends the future-resistance of a system. Im sure maybe Asus or Abit will find a way to get that 400MHz performance... ;)
Occasionally, we even post stuff like this on the news page...like, Monday.

Unfortunately ASUS P4C800 Deluxe doesn't come with new CSA. If it were equipped with the new bus, it would be another solid gold medel candidate.

What is the CSA?
CSA is communication streaming architecture.
With the integration of Intel PRO/1000 CT network connection, achieves 2X Gigabit performance through Communication Streaming Architecture with the Intel 82547EI Gigabit Ethernet Controller. CSA enables bi-directional Gigabit networking with higher performance and lower latency. The Intel 82547EI Gigabit Ethernet Controller supports ASF 2.0, IPMI 1.5 and Advanced Pass Through to enhance authenticated remote management.
Anandtech is currently down but there was a review on the Canterwood chipset and you can find more info there.

I guess this would all be good if they finally had Gigabit routers... but for now, this doesn't seem to make any difference. :confused:
You are right. It doesn't seem to make any difference now. Just like the somewhat new AGP8x. It's always good to have but not necessary. That's why I said if ASUS could use CSA, they would most likely be the champ of new motherboard lines. :) Don't know why they choose not to. Perhaps the production cost.... who knew. :rolleyes:
