The fact that the ATI RS350 performed best with an Intel Prescott chipset was quite a surprise. Clearly, chipsets that are optimized for Prescott E chips appear to have the potential to perform better with Prescott than earlier chipsets like the Intel 865/875, which were primarily designed for Northwood operation. If you plan to buy a Prescott Socket 478 processor, the ATI 9100 IGP PRO is a great match to that CPU.
ATI did an excellent job in updating their integrated chipset. The 9100 IGP PRO is now a chipset that you should seriously consider for your next Intel purchase, particularly if that purchase includes a Prescott, or where that purchase will only include integrated graphics. Intel's upcoming 915/925X will likely bring the same performance boost to Prescott, but for now, the RS350 is the only one on the market that shines so brightly with the P4E chips. This time around, ATI's chipset is able to compete with the best on the market. If overclocking lives up to the other improvements in the ATI integrated chipset, then the 9100 IGP PRO will definitely belong on your short shopping list for motherboards for the Pentium 4.
