Mobo maker Legend QDI has announced a board based on Intel's Springdale chipset.

The P4I865G will ship, says QDI, around the middle of this month, "at the same time Intel launches its new chipset". Intel is expected to launch Prescott, the CPU supporting the 800MHz FSB, at the same time.

The QDI Springdale board supports the 800MHz quad-pumped frontside bus and a dual-channel 400MHz DDR SDRAM bus. It also supports AGP 8x and provide through Intel's Extreme Graphics 2 on the mobo.

The board's Southbridge chip supports ATA-100 and Serial ATA. Up to eight USB 2.0 ports are provided, with 1394 as an optional extra.

QDI also includes a "unique Hyper-Threading diagnostic light technology", which we assume is a set of LEDs that show HT in action, and "proprietary ProEasy technology delivers optimised Hyper-Threading performance". ®
