Sharky heeft een nieuwe issue van z'n 'Sharky's Private Eye' column gepost. Deze keer o.a. info over de Athlon socket versie:
Several sources pointed out the fact that Slot-A is not going to have (at least on the lower-end) a long lasting life for the Athlon as AMD plans to move to a socket based Athlon 'Select' launch next year for the low-end. The Socket 423 (number of pins) could change and plans are to build more capacity for memory and integrate an 8MB L2 cache. You can expect Gigabyte, ASUS and MSI et al. to be releasing socket based Athlon motherboards in Q1 of next year. More good news for AMD comes as the company has allegedly gotten their Dresden factory online, thus the shift to .18micron happening by late November is rapidly becoming a distinct possibility. Bearing in mind that the Athlon 700 is due to start shipping in October, AMD looks certain to grab yet more attention. [break] Tevens info over nieuwe CPU's van Intel, waaronder de 'Tejema'. Geen idee waar dit ding vandaan komt, ik ben 'm op nog geen enkele Intel roadmap tegengekomen (Tejema is gebaseerd op de Willamette?): [/break] The most exciting news we heard was of Intel's plans for their "Tejema" 1.2Gigaherz processor. Yes that's right- 1.2GHz. Current plans are to release this mammoth CPU in the second half of 2000. This release time frame might well change if AMD can get their ramp up to speeds approaching 1Ghz by that time.
Sharky gaat verder met info over de ATi 'Aurora', Videologic Neon 250, Sega Dreamcast, Daikatana, Unreal Tournament en meer. Dat spul lees je allemaal hier.
