A source claimed Intel is readying a Coppermine Celeron with as much as 256K of on-die cache, screaming Cindy (SIMD) instructions, and a 100MHz front side bus using Socket 370. That would make it equivalent to current Pentium III technology, in the same way that the Celeron is really a cut Pentium II. No release date was given for the product but Intel is now claiming no 100MHz FSB Celeron will arrive until the crack of dawn of the year 2000, Ma Shipton willing. Meanwhile, the same source claims Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers are leaving Intel technology in droves because they don't love the 810 chipset. The source said Intel deliberately designed the 810 chipset in such a way that the manufacturers are being forced to adopt technology from the likes of Via and SiS. And, he added, Intel will shortly produce a so-called 810 "fix", which it will give away free. ®
