Cyrix 370 socket support tips up

And yes, the pix are on a Japanese site

One swallow does not make a Spring here in the UK, nor does one picture of a daughterboard make a Cyrix 370 pin CPU. We said this would happen at the beginning of this year. (Stories: Cyrix decides to socket and see and Cyrix to go 370 pin in April) But over at Akiba, we do have a very nice and clear picture of a 370-pin socket on a daughterboard with wording on it which indicates support for both Intel and Cyrix chips. Other pictures at Akiba show that this daughter card, Intel PPGA370 Celeron to Slot One adaptors, show that it can use the Intel/Cyrix 370 pin chips on an existing Slot One motherboard. And a dual 370 configuration? Dunno about that guv. The Taiwanese upgrade daughterboard, marked 370 Socket Inside, will support processors from both firms. Intel and NatSemi, which now owns Cyrix, have cross licensing agreements on this sort of technology. We reported earlier this year that Cyrix would give 370-pin socket support. Other clone x.86 makers, including AMD, seem to be backing away from the idea, possibly because they're moving to Slot technology instead Try our search engine on the number 370 to see our numerous 370-socket stories. ®
