Japanese site confirms S370 CuMine delays

But it has some pictures…

A shop in the Akihabara district of Tokyo is displaying pictures of Intel's Coppermine S370 flip chip product and the Via-Cyrix Joshua processor. But in the case of the former product, while Intel made an "announcement" of the S370 Coppermines last Monday, no product will be forthcoming for some time, according to the shop showing the pictures. According to this page, the CPU heatsink and fan is somewhat different from the conventional socket. Last week, we revealed that a problem with the heatsink has caused Intel to delay releasing the product, while other PC manufacturers have said they don't expect to see S370 Coppermine chips in volume until Q1 of next year. The Japanese page quips that the only way to benchmark this chip is so far is by looking through the glass of the shop in Akihabara. ® See also Huge shortages, technical problems hit Intel Coppermine debut
