Techweb bericht dat Intel in het vierde kwartaal, waarschijnlijk november, een tweede poging zal ondernemen om de i820 Camino chipset in de markt te planten. Als deze info klopt dan is de delay dus minder dan eerder werd aangenomen (~rond de 3 maand):
Intel's twice-delayed Camino PC chip set will ship in the fourth quarter, and most likely in November, according toindustry sources that were briefed by Intel late yesterday.
Intel, Santa Clara, Calif., professed no knowledge of the meeting, which several sources said was conducted in advance of the company's quarterly earnings conference call set for Tuesday afternoon.
"There have been no public updates on Camino," said a company spokesman, who added that platform integration work continues and no new launch date has been scheduled.
That may be true, but sources said they were specifically told that Intel would roll out the Camino, or Intel 820 as it is officially known, in the fourth quarter. They said the company also indicated that it would be able to ship the product at that time, though only in small quantities. Earlier this week, Intel publicly denied the Camino would be released in the first quarter of 2000, contradicting published reports.
Over de i840 Carmel server chipset werd niets gezegd, maar verwacht wordt dat deze op 25 oktober tesamen met de PIII Coppermine ge´ntroduceerd zal worden. Zie Techweb voor het complete nieuwsartikel.
