Intel posts 440ZX, 440ZX66 chipset specs

New sets cut-down versions of 440BX for mid to low-end systems

Intel has posted details of its new 440ZX and 440ZX66 chipsets on its Web site -- even though it has yet to announce them officially. The two chip-sets have been designed for Pentium II and Celeron-based systems, respectively. Both support a maximum RAM space of just 256MB, and neither is capable of handling multiple processors. Essentially, both appear to be cut-down versions of the 440BX chipset for OEMs who don't require that set's full range of features, but want more than the 440LX and 440EX provide. ®
