A report in Taiwanese trade paper Eurotrade has quoted senior Intel VP Pat Gelsinger as saying that Socket 370 will be the form factor for Celerons running at 500MHz on .18 micron technology. The magazine is also reporting that the 810 chipset, announced today, and aimed at the low-end market, will support Microsoft's up and coming Windows 2000 platform. Eurotrade was reporting Gelsinger's keynote speech at the Asia Pacific Intel Developer Forum. Earlier this year, at the Palm Spring Intel Developer Forum, his colleague, Paul Otellini, said that Pentium IIIs themselves would have a different form factor to Slot One, although at the time, he refused to elaborate on what this might be. An Intel representative said: "We'll continue to support the previous part in Slot One configurations. We're seeing demand from customers. The strategy is that the 370 pin configuration will allow our customers to save money. " See also Intel says new PIII socket on way for iMac look-alikes
