Rise shows S370 Tiger

And notebooks make first appearance

Computex Sample versions of the Rise Socket 370 microprocessor were on display at the company's stand today. We've taken some snaps which we'll post when we get back to our ThinkPad later today. The processor, called the Tiger, has a 1.8 volt core, and will come supporting PC-100, PC-133 and PC-266 in the third quarter of this year, said David Lin, CEO of the startup. At the same time, Rise was also showing off its Mp6-PR366 processor and is Mp6-PR333 processor in two notebooks. The first, the Clero 982, uses the 100MHz mobile Aladdin V chipset, and comes with Rage LTPro and AGP2x. The mini-notebook, the Arrgo Infinite 8A15, uses the 430TX chipset and weighs a couple of pounds. Lin also showed off a desktop model using a Rise chip which he said did not need a fan. ®
