The Register meldt dat Intel binnenkort zelf ook twee i820 Camino moederborden zal releasen, in verband met de nieuwe 533B en 600B processors. Check The Register voor het nieuws.
Intel is readying both the Vancouver VC820 and another mobo believed to be called the Cape Cod CC820 and also based on the Camino chip set. A board called Fairbanks (FB820) will use the NLX form factor and will include ATI Rage Pro graphics on board.
The chip giant is hedging its memory bets, said the source. One allows people to move quickly from the BX set to the 820, while the other is intended to satisfy wide demand for the PC-100 SDRAM standard.
The Vancouver board is intended as a channel mobo using Rambus. The Cape Cod 820 -- a separate mobo -- is the "bee's knees" for SDRAM PC-100.
The boards will be available, in both varieties, in week 42, according to a German distributor familiar with these matters and Intel's plans.
