Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

If anyone thinks that Intel is just going to go away and sulk in his lair after watching the Athlon AMD advert on the telly, they don't know Chipzilla like we know Chipzilla. Over the weekend we reported that Intel has cunning plans to bundle Rambus memory with both its VC820 and its OR840 motherboards, and we also unveiled details of the Fairbanks-Caminogate mobo (FB820). Now we have obtained details of a whole spate of motherboards from Intel set to arrive in the first quarter of next year, all of which will use Chipzilla's rationalised coding system. (The old mobos used to have catchy code numbers such as 0532475ZX83245353). Welcome, then to the D820LP, also known as Lockport, a PGA 370 mobo which has onboard audio and networking, supports AGP4x and comes in the good old ATX form factor. Hello too, to the D820PG, or Pacific Grove, a natty MicroATX number which also supports PGA 370 and AGP4x. A round of applause for Montreal, a number which supports 810e graphics, the exciting FlexATX form factor which will act as a pouffe for CEO Craig Barrett, and also supports PGA 370. Greetings to Templeton, a number which uses the Intel FlexATX design, comes with integrated networking, video and audio, and also supports the soon-to-be ubiquitous Socket 370. And lastly, but by no means leastly, a "hi there" to the S820PN-2, a dual Slot 1 number with onboard U2 SCSI, networking, three slots for super synchronous memory on a riser card, and AGP4x. No, Chipzilla is not going to lurk in his lair at Mission Boulevard, Satan Clara for the whole of the year 2000. ® See also Intel's Rambus mobos may have memory bundled Athlon ad they could never show in Blighty
