Bridging the IT gap between rising business demands and ageing tools

Intel will ship at least two versions of i820 Camino motherboards to coincide with the launch of the 533B and the 600B, sources say. THe chip giant is readying both the Vancouver VC820 and another mobo believed to be called the Cape Cod CC820 and also based on the Camino chip set. A board called Fairbanks (FB820) will use the NLX form factor and will include ATI Rage Pro graphics on board. Intel is hedging its memory bets, here. One board allows OEMs to move quickly from the BX set to the 820, while the other is intended to satisfy wide demand for the PC-100 SDRAM standard. The Vancouver board is intended as a channel mobo using Rambus. The Cape Cod 820 -- a separate mobo -- is the "bee's knees" for SDRAM PC-100. The boards will be available, in both varieties, in week 42, according to a German distributor familiar with these matters and Intel's plans. Intel will sell the two types of i820 board either individually or in boxes of 10, he says . Some boards will come with Soundblaster audio, while some will not. Also, the Lan configuration of the CA 810 board is on indefinite hold because the RJ45 Lan connector is not working as it should. Intel is telling its distributors that changes can happen at a moment's notice. ®
