High performance access to file storage

The CC820 (Cape Cod) motherboard has been placed on hold until Intel fixes the memory hub translator (MHT), which has caused performance degradation, The Register has learned. According to a source inside the company, all shipments have now been halted until Intel's chipset division comes up with a more reliable MHT. As noted here earlier, Intel is discussing i820 chipset modifications so that Rambus and PC-133 memories will be supported on the same motherboard, but there are some technical difficulties preventing a rapid implementation of the plans. The source also confirms that Intel will completely ditch Slot One production at the end of the year, with the 1GHz Pentium III the last to use this slot (SECC2) technology. Again, as reported here, the source, who works for the Intel Corporation, said that Willamette will be released late this year at 1.4GHz, along with its server partner, Foster. Meanwhile, Intel will launch a board dubbed the D810EMO-flexATX in April. This will support 370-pin Pentium III Coppermines and Celerons, but will have no mouse, keyboard, parallel, or serial ports and only use USB devices. It will have one DIMM slot, one PCI slot but no AGP slot. The D820AP-ATX will be similar to the CC820 except with a new Socket 370 instead of a Slot One. Intel will release its Garabaldi Tehama based board for Willamette in Q3, while its Clark board is expected to support dual Foster configurations. Camino 2 will support ATA/100, while Camino 3 will feature a better Memory Transfer Hub (see above). As expected, Tehama will support Willamette and Rambus technology only. ® Related Story Bitter war breaks out inside Intel
