Intel's Vancouver, Cape Cod mobos to cost around $130 each

You can buy 'em with or without Creative Labs stuff

A dealer has now supplied us with prices and more details of the 133MHz front side bus motherboards Intel's Pentium III/533B and 600B will slot into it. The CC820 (Cape Cod) and the VC820 (Vancouver) mobos use Intel's i820 chipset and will be available at launch next Monday. You can buy them with or without integrated Creative Labs audio and that choice will mean around a $10 difference. Intel also offers additional discounts of around $5 if you buy these mobos in quantity. The Vancouver mobo is described as an ATX motherboard, with 133MHz FSB, AGP 4X, AMR and RDRAM in an ATA/66 configuration. The Cape Cod is a similar configuration, costs around $10 less, and supports PC-100 SDRAM, rather than the still highly expensive Rambus RIMMs. The Pentium III/533B is already widely available, and is likely to cost between $350 and $400 for the boxed part. Intel will not comment on these products until it decides to. ®
