New hybrid storage solutions

Chip giant Intel is now likely to face fire from its distributors and dealers after senior executives confirmed today Celeron Slot Ones are being dumped. We still wait to see whether or not Intel will move all of its Pentium IIIs to Socket 370, although the giant is still denying that. Pat Gelsinger, a senior VP at Intel US, told delegates at its Developer Forum in Taipei, Taiwan today that there will be a big move to 370 Socket Celerons starting very soon. But that means a huge amount of Celeron Slot One inventory remains in the channel, according to distributors and dealers. The official Intel distributor, who did not wish to be named on this occasion, said that press coverage of the S370 futures would leave him with some problems. "We're already committed to large stocks of Celeron Slot One," the distributor claimed. 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. "®
