i820 Camino pix thrash cyberspace
Future Celerons takes shape
Intel Developer Forum -- Updated Not only has Japanese Web site Happy Cat posted pix of the infamous K6-III, it also seems to have quite a bit of info about i820 Camino as well as some other Intel trinkets. The latest news we had tonight was that Intel has slapped an injunction on the corner shop. Nevertheless, the site is still up and if Intel succeeds in its task, we have taken copies. If you go here to Happy Cat and scroll down the page, you'll see some pix labelled Intel SECRET. Plus there are Japanese words about Escondido, Calderon, the i742 and the i752. Escondido is Intel's codename for the next iteration of the Celeron, we can now reveal. Unfortunately, we did not pick up much Japanese during our trip to the country last year and we asked earlier on if someone could translate these words for us. And sure enough, a regular Japanese reader came up trumps. The source is the same one who gave us our K6-III scoop. And his translation of the words is as follows: "In addition to Intel's 810 (Whitney,VGA i742), Intel will disclose its Intel 815 which will support FSB133 SDRAM and integrated i752(Portola)." Camino will arrive in May, the translator said. But some of the dynamite is in a statement which said Intel would be forced to support PC133 memory, as revealed here only three days ago (see Intel forced to support PC133 DRAM). Intel representatives in Palm Springs tonight would only confirm that Escondido was one of their future codenames. Calderon is probably one of theirs as well. They attempted to persuade us that signing one of their famous non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) was in our best interests. But after examining the small print, we could not agree... ®
