Techweb schrijft dat Intel in januari de Solano chipset zal introduceren, opvolger van de i810 en volgens Techweb de eerste Intel chipset met PC133 support (i810E heeft toch ook al 133MHz FSB!?).
The first chip set from Intel to support PC133 SDRAM will be the Solano, an upgraded device from within the Intel 810 chip set family that will debut in January, not a new chip set code-named Amador, as has been widely rumored on Wall Street, sources close to the matter said on Wednesday.
[...] Camino will support PC100 SDRAM -- not PC133 -- but only by using an extra Memory Translator Hub on the motherboard.
It will be left to the Solano to add a PC133 interface to the memory subsystem; the chip set will also include a 133-MHZ front-side bus that supports Celeron and Pentium processors. Industry sources said Intel has accelerated the Solano introduction by several months to meet demand for the new, faster SDRAM interface. [break] Verder hebben ze het over een (Itanium?) server chipset met DDR support. The Register schreef hier gisteren ook al over: [/break] It wasn't known if the follow-on PC133-enabled chip set is the rumored Amador, although the device isn't expected to be ready until much later in 2000. Yet another upcoming Intel chip set will support double-data-rate PC266 SDRAM for servers, but sources said the product won't be unveiled until early in 2001.
