Intel's next chipset codenamed "Granite Bay"?

Hard|OCP's Kyle has found a little information on the next chipset by Intel, which they (sort of)verified at Comdex. Here's the snippet:

"Here is something you probably have not heard about that we did verify at Comdex. Intel's next chipset will be code named the "Granite Bay". Now hold onto your hats folks as this badboy is showing off dual channel DDR support for the 533MHz Pentium 4 (possibly up to a 2.53Ghz Northwood core CPU) and will be coupled with the ICH4 southbridge that will support AGP8X as well as some really cool other stuff. Nice..... From the information we have seen it should be launched about Q3'02, but of course we all know these dates change with the wind. Please keep in mind that this information did not come directly from Intel, but when we mentioned it to them, the look on their face seemed to confirm our information."
