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.

The upgrades will support up to 256Mb of PC66 and PC100 SDRAM modules, Evergreen said. ®
