The essential guide to IT transformation

A hardware site has posted what it claims is the first review of motherboards using the i820 Camino chipset. Got Apex also has more information on the Cape Cod and Vancouver mobos Intel will shortly release. The reviewer was restricted to testing boards using a Rambus 64MB RIMM. He wanted to buy a 128MB RIMM but was quoted the staggering price of $825 for the upgrade. Benchmarks conducted using the Vancouver (VC820) mobo against the Seattle BX chipset part, seemed to confirm earlier reports here that the older chipset beats the Camino chipset. The reviewer says he sees no reason for people to upgrade to Camino systems, given these benchmarks. At Quake, he says, the old BX motherboard beats the i820 "senseless". There is a huge demand for BX mobos which Intel is unable to supply, with supply restricted until the end of the year, as reported here last week. Some cynical souls have suggested this is mighty handy for Intel given the imminent launch of the i820 platform. ®
