Hard OCP heeft een berichtje binnen gekregen met wat info over Abit's Camino / i820 plank, de CX6:
"I know I hate rumors too, but this one came from October issue of Computer Shopper UK (Dabs Direct Ad).
ABIT CX6 ATX Form Factor Slot 1 Mainboard, Intel i820 AGPset, Full support for both 100Mhz and 133Mhz FSB Intel CPU's, 3 RIMM sockets, 1 AGP 4x Slot, 5 PCI Slots, 0 ISA Slots, (Damn!) PC99 Compliant." [break]Verder heeft The Register ook een bericht over de release date van deze Camino chipset van Intel. Deze zou eind volgende maand moeten komen: [/break] When we reported a week or so back that Dabs Direct was listing a PIII .18 Coppermine chip available at the end of next month, our local Intel rep responded by saying it was probably a typo. (Story: PIII/600 with 133MHz FSB outed!!!)
We now admit it may well have been a typo. It should have been the 27th of September. According to the excellent roadmap over at Roan's, which we confess we haven't spotted before, the release date for the Cumine beastie is the 27th September.
In an email, Roan says his information is highly reliable. His information is that Intel will release 600-700MHz parts, with 256KB cache, Screaming Sindy extensions and using a 133MHz FSB in a Slot One format on that date.
Next week, Intel is expected to announce how it will square the SDRAM-Direct Rambus circle. ®
