Volgens The Register zal Intel eind deze maand de i840 Carmel chipset introduceren. Tegelijkertijd wordt er een rond deze chipset gebouwde server plank op de markt gepoot:
The board, dubbed the OR840, is expected to cost around $250 for the boxed version and will support up to two Intel CPUs.
It will come with support for up to 2Gb of memory, and four 168-pin RIMM (Rambus) sockets, supporting speeds of 600MHz and 800MHz. That indicates that Intel's problem with Rambus memory may be confined to the i820 Camino chipset only.
[...] The OR840 has built in support for floppy drive, ultra DMA and integrated Fast Ethernet 10/100 Base TX. Video, which is not integrated, has a 266MHz data transfer rate, while the board has two USB ports, one 32-bit PCI slot, and five other bus slots. Bus slot four uses AGP 4x.
