Zoals jullie waarschijnlijk al hebben vernomen, Diamond Multimedia heeft Micronics overgenomen, en wil hiermee een deel van de Moederborden markt voor zich winnen.
Diamond Micronics C200 Socket7
ALi 5 Chipset, 3 DIMM, 4PCI, 3ISA and AGP. Multipliers 1,5-5,5 , Busspeeds 66-100 and Award BIOS.
Diamond wanted with their first line of mobo's, a good, steady line of boards just to get their name out in the motherboard market.
If this is what Diamond was shooting for than they hit the arrow right on the target.
If you plan to overclock it, make note that the C200 doesn't support busspeeds up and over 100MHz, like the very popular 112 MHz.
With the imminent release of the last of the major Socket7 based processors, the AMD K6-3, the C200 extends itself as a solution for these future users as well.
Although this is the case with all Super7 Mobo's, it's nice to know if you're considering upgrading to a Super7 solution.
The K6-3 will utilize your board's L2 cache, and determine it as L3 cache instead.
After the K6-3 though, possibillities look grin for the Super7 platform as AMD and Intel, the two major forces in the consumer processor. Street Price $95
Diamond's name for support.
