Default 800mhz bus p4

anyone here looking forward to getting an canterwood chipset for an 800mhz bus pentium 4? just a few weeks back i was sooo close to getting an nforce 2 and upgrading my ddr266/1333 athlon combo, so i searched the net and found out that quite a few people had problems with the nforce 2 so i got put off.(meanwhile my brother got an nforce2 and he says that its great and he has had no probs with it). now i hear that intel are comin out with the canterwood chipset with 800 mhz bus and support for prescott so im thinking that i could get the canterwood chipset instead and match it up with one of intels new 800mhz HT p4's theyre comin out @ 2400mhz,2600mhz,2800mhz ect .(they come out in april) and then some time next year upgrade to a prescott cpu when theyve come down in price. ive heard that these p4s at 800mhz bus will be a bit cheaper than the current p4s at the same speed so im looking hopefully at a 2600p4/canterwood/dual drr400 ram. i will be looking at the benches sometime in april before making a choice. yeh i dont overclock so buying an 2100xp/nforce2 and o/c is not for me.i know its sad but i dont like to o/c

No. The Prescotts will be .09 micron P4's.

...and will have a totally new socket. So don't expect a Canterwood board to be particularly future proof. Having said this, It's currently what I expect to get in the next few months.

Prescotts? Did they have to name them after a useless fat politician?

yeh that part i know ,but i cant wait till mid to early next year to get that other mobo with the new socket (it will also have pci express) ,so im just going to have to settle with this one i think if its good, by next year im hoping that this chipset will at least support prescott at 3.6 ghz so i can upgrade to that .
stealth i dont know what theyll call these p4 ,theyre the same as normal ones but with HT and 800mhz bus

Prescotts are supposed to come in both the Socket 478 {800MHz FSB) and later socket T forms {1066MHz}.

That's good news. Makes some sense, as I read somewhere that Springdale and Canterwood will support Prescotts. As far as what the new 800Mhz FSB chips that are going to be available in April / May are going to be called, pass, I don't know. I've only ever heard them referred to as "P4 with 800Mhz FSB".

It's a bit confusing, can anyone categorically confirm:

1. The name of the "new" 800 FSB P4.
2. The compatability of Springdale and Canterwood with socket 478 Prescotts.

All good fun...
