Taipei, Taiwan, R.O.C. Wednesday, January 18th, 2000— With great shifts taking place in CPU architectures, ABIT® continues to help bridge the gaps between them with their introduction of their new SlotKET™ !!! adaptor card. Previous SlotKET™ converters were able let Celeron PPGA CPUs run in Slot 1 mainboards. The new SlotKET™ !!! allows you to do the same with Intel’s new line of socketed Pentium® III Coppermine CPUs. This architecture, termed “FC-PGA” or “Flip-Chip” (as opposed to the PPGA Celerons), is supposed to gain more precedence in the future, but the SlotKET™ !!! lets you enjoy it on your current Slot 1 motherboard.
In addition to “Flip-Chip” Coppermine support, another new addition to the SlotKET™ !!! is core voltage adjustment capabilities, for further stability and control. Sets of color-coded jumpers allow you to select from 32 different voltage settings between 1.3 and 3.5v, including an “auto select” option. As with previous SlotKET™s, dual CPUs are possible. In addition to the Coppermine’s 133MHz front side bus speed, the SlotKET™ !!! can be set at 66 or 100MHz instead, to comply with motherboard support.
With this new solution from ABIT® a person can purchase among any of the Slot 1 or Socket 370 CPUs on the market (be they PPGA or FC-PGA) and not have to worry at all about compatibility with whatever motherboard they have.
