Intel reveals details of i820 mobos
Caminogate III: the spex go up
As promised, Intel has now released details of its Vancouver (VC820) and Cape Cod (CC820) boards which use the twice-delayed i820 chipset. Details of the specifications can be found on the Intel site here. The same page outlines details of how Intel is rationalising the names of its desktop motherboards. They show that the Rambus model, the VC820, indeed only has two RDRAM module connectors, following Intel's failure to make three RIMM sockets work together. The CC820, again as expected, uses PC 100 memory in two SDRAM 168 pin configurations, also supporting 512Mb of memory. Attention will now focus on the performance differences between these motherboards, now they are in full production. ® For details of Intel's Spring Collection of mobos, go here.
