Got a bit mixed up since I wasnt following Intel news lately, but since I'm no fanboy I want to look into the new P4 with 800mhz FSB :)

Canterwood is the high end chipset. Springdale is midrange/lowend?

Springdale has integrated graphics, i think.

i don't think Intel releases chipsets that are "less stable."

from what i've seen they both support dual channel DDR400. Springdale is listed as also supporting dual channel DDR333, while Canterwood is not. the features seem pretty much the same besides the integrated graphics.

i'm sure there will be other differences, but i haven't heard what.

Turbo mode is a slight overclock methinks?
