Intel's Solano, Amador only a bubble'n'squeak away

815 is half alive

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

The effect of Intel's debacle with the 820 Camino chipset has been to speed up development of its own PC-133 and Double Data Rate (DDR) chipsets, it has emerged. Intel will move to fill a hole by adapting its 815 (Solano) chipset so that the generally poorly regarded graphics in the i810 and i810e will put an AGP 4X slot on motherboards, our sources still insist. That motherboard will also support PC-133 synchronous memory, rather than Rambus memory, a scheme set to satisfy a multitude of PC manufacturers who want to build inexpensive PCs that use the far cheaper, and also far more available, SDRAM memory. Intel has also been pushed into using the DDR chipset using the Amador chipset, as revealed here earlier. That is slated for the second half of next year, unless the chip giant brings it forward. There is another, more pressing reason, for Intel to move fast to PC-133 and DDR memory. Via Technologies is hot on its heels, and as we pointed out earlier today, will unveil a DDR chipset aimed at desktop, rather than server systems, at Comdex/Fall in a week's time. ® See also Intel likely to bring Solano chipset forward i820 pushed back to week 48: Amador emerges Via to intro new Athlon chipset, DDR desktop chipset next week
