After launching the i875P (codename Caterwood) chipset about one month ago, Intel pushes out the budget version of the same silicon wrapped in more humble clothes. Featuring a reduced package size with lower pin count and stripped of some features relating either to performance (PAT) or else to data integrity (ECC), the new 865 chipset family comes at approximately 30% savings over the more expensive Canterwood chipset. This is on the chipset alone, further savings will be on the mainboard level because of easier tooling and lower manufacturing costs for the PCB. Many tales are spun around ECC but suffice it to say that the average user will not see any benefit of its presence. Performance acceleration technology on the other hand targets the initial access latency, which is, after all the main culprit holding back system performance, regardless of bandwidth. Keep in mind that this is the exact issue that finally caused Rambus to falter but how bad is it with Springdale? No less than three different versions of the new chipset are brought out, for the budget oriented, Intel releases the 865P, limited to 533 MHz FSB. Aficionados of integrated graphics will find their new toy in form of the 865G and finally, for the high-end user, there is the 865PE version. All three versions feature native support for Serial ATA integrated into the ICH5 but there are still differences. Read on to find out.
