Updated Intel has now introduced its 810 chipset and a 466MHz Celeron today, as first revealed here a good while back. The processor will be supported by a large number of PC vendors. At the same time, Intel also announced a 333MHz mobile Celeron, as well as a low voltage mobile Celeron at 266MHz, as also anticipated here. The 810 rather mysteriously supports both 66MHz and 100MHz front side bus speeds – Celeron isn’t due to move on up to 100MHz FSB until early 2000 and there’s still a 500MHz/66MHz FSB Celeron due out later in the year. If it wanted to, Chipzilla could surprise us all and move this baby to the 100MHz FSB, if it wanted to. Intel has denied that the 810 will be able to support Pentium II processors so it’s not easy to see exactly why 100MHz is on offer right now, unless there’s a Socket 370 Coppermine waiting in the wings (something Intel’s Paul Otellini has denied). The 466MHz part will be priced around $170 in 1,000 unit quantities, the lesser Celerons having their price tags chopped in readiness on the 11th of April. The 810 can support up to 512Mb of SDRAM and uses Dynamic Video Memory for graphics. Intel has its own 810 motherboard ready, codenamed Cayman. This features the usual suspects of USB, AC97 audio and PCI expansion slots, but rather unusually for a board in this category, boasts LAN on motherboard too – perhaps recognition from Intel that large businesses are recognising the value for money Celeron offers over the Pentium II and III lines. Intel has now posted information about the mobile Celerons, the 810 and the 466MHz Celeron on its Web site. ® See also Intel's desktop roadmap until September 1999 Intel mobile chip prices
