De mannen van Thresh's FiringSquad hebben een flinke Coppermine Motherboard Guide op het net gezet waarin ze in totaal 27 plankjes bespreken waar je je Coppermine CPU op kunt plakken. In de guide vindt je een opsomming van i820 en i840 mobo's van o.a. Abit, Asus, Aopen, Soyo en MSI. Hieronder een gedeelte:
Besides the EB Coppermines, there are also those that ship with the embedded cache but without the 133 MHz bus. These CPU's are given the "E" designation and are available in speeds of 700, 650, and 600 MHz with the 600 model given the official "E" designation. These three CPU's ship with the S.E.C.C.2 package. In addition, there are also 550E and 500E models that come with the newer Flip-Chip Pin Grid Array package (FC-PGA) to make matters even more confusing.
The final Coppermine variant is the "B" model. Available in speeds of 600B and 533B MHz, these are traditional Pentium III's (i.e. they ship with 512K L2 cache running at half the speed of the processor) running on the 133 MHz system bus. Like traditional Pentium III's, these CPU's feature S.E.C.C.2 packaging.
Users looking to upgrade their older Celeron or Pentium III systems based on the BX-chipset can upgrade to the "E" series CPU's if they have the right motherboard. For those of you who want the embedded cache and support for RDRAM or AGP4X however, you'll have to purchase a new motherboard based on the Intel 820 or 840 chipset. We've compiled an exhaustive list of motherboards that feature either the 820 or 840 chipset so you don't have to. But first, lets see what these new chipsets add to the table.
