Intel to launch processors with 1066MHz FSB soon?

The Inquirer learned today that Intel will release new CPUs with a 1066MHz FSB (266MHz Quadpumped). This might mean a very big performance boost. The Inq believes that this CPU is an extension to the Prescott core with an overclocked FSB, but they aren't sure yet.

It's also unknown if this CPU will work in Grantsdale, 915-P and 915-G motherboards.
This seems to be Intel's way of fighting AMD's 939 dual memory controller chips that are due to be released anytime soon. AMD obviously doesn't have any problem introducing its 3700+ and faster chips as they don't have any heat problems. Who said that Intel cannot keep up with AMD? Is this FSB overclock going to increase heat as well? We hope not.
