A number of PC products have, as usual, made their debut in the Akihabara area of Tokyo, a good while before we will see them in either Tottenham Court Road or NYC. According to the latest, Japanese report, from Akihabara PC hotline, motherboards have started to appear to support the Via Samuel processor, while sales of the Via Cyrix socket 7 MIIv and MIIv mobile parts have already started. And, as revealed here last week, there is a sample of an Intel i840 third party board made by Supermicro being shown, which will support the 800MHz Xeon in its familiar Slot Two configuration. The long-awaited ATI Rage Fury Max has also made its appearance, priced at between Y35,000 and Y40,000. (One US dollar = Y106). A K7 mobo from Asus which was the subject of a disappearing act last year, has also made its appearance in its retail packaging. And the Intel .25 Celeron 533MHz is also now available in Akihabara, Pricewatch Japan reports.
