X-bit Labs writes that Intel plans to unveil its Canterwood-ES chipset in Q4 of this year. This chipset is ment for entry-lever servers and will be available under the Intel E7210 brandname.

We originally mentioned Intel’s Canterwood-ES chipset in March this year and even brought you the clear specifications of the part. Nothing changed from that time – the MCH will still support processors with 533, 800MHz QPB, dual-channel PC2700 or PC3200 memory with ECC support, CSA bus for Kenai-II Gigabit Ethernet controller as well as PAT, the main feature of the i875P and E7210 core-logic designs.

The difference between “Canterwood” i875P and E7210 chipsets for desktop and server applications respectively lies in I/O controllers: i875P comes with ICH5R that supports USB 2.0 as well as Serial ATA-150 RAID, while for the UP Rack server market, Canterwood-ES may be paired with the ICH-S (Hance Rapids) South Bridge, which provides 64-bit PCI required by entry-level servers.

The E7210 will be priced at $44, sources indicated. The cost makes sense since the core-logic is mostly intended for cost-effective Pedestal or 1U Rack servers at $700-$800 or $1000-$1200 price-points respectively.

About a half year later in Q3 2004 the Canterwood-ES chipset will be replaced by the Copper River chipset.
