Intel Developer Forum Senior Intel VP Pat Gelsinger said today that Rambus would ramp in quantity throughout the rest of this year, with 46 types of RIMM (Rambus inline memory modules) available from seven vendors. In his keynote speech at the Intel Developer Forum in Palm Springs, Gelsinger also gave details of the delayed Camino i820 chipset, and said it was on track for its new launch date, tipped to be the end of September by The Register The i820 chipset supports Rambus modules, has a 133MHz FSB, AGP 4x and ICH/ATA66. (See earlier story, with pictures, here). Gelsinger said Intel is on track for its Coppermine technology, and revealed that a 666MHz processor was part of the plan. To his credit, and to our chagrin, he changed the number 666 to 667 a second later. He said that Coppermine was expected in Q4, but in an earlier keynote, CEO Craig Barrett suggested that October could be the date. Gelsinger also focused on Intel's e-home push, and showed a number of i820 and i810 based Concept (legacy free) PCs. Those included machines from AST, Daewoo, and NEC. Many Concept PCs will ship before the end of the year, said Gelsinger. Intel literature in the showcase area of the forum shows S370 socketed Pentium IIIs as part of the platform, as previously revealed here. ® Full IDF Summer 99 coverage
