Intel mobo prices and spex for the 24th: we got the lot
Slot one creeps into Dodoland
Irregular sources close to Intel's plans have now given us the complete price list for its motherboards as from next Sunday. We have already given prices for the Coppermine processors it will release in earlier stories which can be found here and here. The SE440BX (Seattle) mobo which uses the 440BX chipset with Coppermine support, (823346) will cost $110, while the same mobo with integrated Yamaha audio will cost $122. The SR440BX will cost $182. The CA810e, a Micro ATX board which supports the socketed Pentium III (and Celeron), will cost $135. The same board with integrated Crystal 4297/Creative 1373 will cost $146. The RC440BX, a slot one baby, which includes Ensoniq PCI audio and supports the PIII, PII, and Celeron costs $150. Pretty clear what that message is -- slot one is in dodoland. The Celeron S370 board, the B1440ZX, which comes with integrated Ensoniq 1373A audio, costs $98. What a bargain Celerons are. The CA810 boards cost $109 and $140 respectively. Intel will not comment publicly on unannounced products and prices. ®
