    In the review I read yes it does, but I have heard NO official statements about ANY current motherboard that will.

    Basically if you are looking at getting a board NOW for a processor that isn't even coming out for another 3 months, that is stupid. It is best to wait until then to see what is available.

    Jan-Feb. I would not buy any hardware now if you want guaranteed future compatibility. Besides there is a new chipset coming with the Prescott.

    crazysniper22: Abit's AI7 i865PE motherboard supports Intel's Prescott (478) processor. But I would also suggest that you wait until next year when more options become available.

    By the time that Intel Prescot processor mobo's are released the later proper Athlon FX pure 939 pin CPU should also be available so I'd suggest a hold and wait a bit approach to find the best option.

    Alderwood
    Grantsdale

    Intel's next major chipset release


    Next generation Intel Grantsdale chipsets will also differ quite significantly from the predecessors, i875 and i865, due to a big number of enhancements introduced in it. As we managed to find out, Intel informed its partners about a few key innovations, which are worth mentioning.

    Firstly, the new chipset will support DDR II memory, which will definitely lead to higher performance of the systems based on it. Intel assumes that in Q2 2004 DDR II memory will be quite popular and widely spread already.

    Secondly, Grantsdale will support PCI Express x16 Connector for high-performance graphics cards, such as ATI R423 and NVIDIA NV40. They also stress that the integrated version of their Grantsdale chipset aka Grantsdale-G, will feature the third generation graphics core.

    One more new connector supported by the new Grantsdale, the PCI Express x1 Connector, will be designed for new expansion cards supporting this bus. And in conclusion, Intel mentions that they will have more SerialATA ports supported by the new Grantsdale core logic. All these innovations will be implemented in the new ICH6/RAID South Bridge.

    Summing up everything said above, I can figure out the major Grantsdale specifications list.

    800MHz processor bus support
    Supports CPUs designed in LGA775 package
    Dual-channel DDR2-533/400 SDRAM
    Dual-channel DDR400/333 SDRAM for better compatibility
    Third generation integrated graphics core in Grantsdale-G
    PCI Express x16 support
    ICH6/RAID South Bridge with RAID support
    4 Serial ATA ports
    PCI Express x1

    The first CPUs to be used with Grantsdale chipset will be Pentium 4 processors on Prescott core working at 3.6GHz core clock. They will be announced together with Grantsdale chipset family. These CPUs will be designed in LGA775 form-factor, feature 1MB L2 cache, support Hyper-Threading technology and 800MHz bus.

    xbit

    Grantsdale
    Will be replaced by Lakeport in 2005
