System Apex heeft een artikeltje in elkaar gedraaid met een samenpakking van de gevolgen van het i820 chipset fiasco (de '8 ramifications' ):
First, there are the major problems like stated above. Profits will definitely fall from this delay. i820 powered machines are to be the best of the best systems available. With a new chipset running new technologies like Rambus and Coppermine CPUs, parts makers could fetch a hefty price at the beginning of the i820's introduction. While they can still do this when the i820 comes out, they are losing a month in which prices can be higher, as prices should drop quickly after Christmas. Until the i820, the BX chipset will still be tops, and no one can really make a profit off of the BX anymore.
The next ramification is going to be the introduction of the Coppermine CPUs. Only the i820 and i810e chipset will able able to initially support the 133mhz FSB that Coppermine uses. With the i820 out of the picture for a bit, only the i810e can support Coppermine for a bit. This is a problem because high end users will have a hard time being able to use Coppermine, as the i810e is a midrange chipset, and very few people would bother to use motherboards using it just to get Coppermine CPUs running.
