In case you haven't heard, the 915/925 chipsets are PCIe, they have great onboard audio compared to no audio before, have NCQ, faster MCH/memory bus, 4 SATA and 3 Firewire ports, Matrix RAID, etc. so there is plenty of improvement.
U are not saying the whole truth though. In my opinion the excitement about the new prescott, 915/925 line shouldn't be about ICH6, onboard audio and PCI-E. It should be about cpu performance and oc'ing ability and both are worse in most cases compared to a northwood...
