US company Evergreen Technologies has shown a family of upgrade platforms which will upgrade machines using the standard PCI slot. Needles and 370 pinsThe first upgrade in the Eclipse PCI family supports the Intel 440BX chipset and the 370-pin interface at speeds of 266MHz, 300MHz and 333MHz with integrated L2 cache. That will be available early next year. And Evergreen said that it will then introduce a Super 7 version supporting the K6-2 and future socket seven chips from Cyrix, IDT, Intel as well as AMD. This upgrade will use the VIA MVP 3 chipset and support bus speeds of up to 100MHz. According to Mike Magee (no known relation), CEO of Evergreen, it now offers the only solution to upgrade legacy systems to the performance level of PII processors. He said that the upgrade only takes a few minutes and there is no need to remove or modify processors or memory in existing machines. The upgrades will support up to 256Mb of PC66 and PC100 SDRAM modules, Evergreen said. ®
