Part Two The Intel Hudson (SC5000) chassis will have three 5.25in device bays and one floppy, five hot-swap drive bays, two additional non-hot swap drive bays and support 10,000rpm drives. It has two power options, a 300W PS2 and a 350W 1+1 redundant hot swap option. It will include four system fans, two behind the drive bays and two in a redundant power supply. The Byrd (SR2000) chassis is a low profile system for 19in racks, includes a rail kit and a PCI riser card supporting two full length PCI slots. It includes one slimline IDE CD-ROM, a so-called 'flexible bay' which can be used for floppy, tape drive or a hard disk, up to four by 1in hard drives or two by 1.6in hard drives, and two by 1in Ultra 160 SCSI hard drive which is hot swappable. It will have two system fans, and a 275W PFC autosensing power supply. The Hudson will arrive mid-April, the Byrd SRA early April, the Lancewood ECO with a 10-pin connector in mid April, and a boxed board of the Lancewood with new cables also in mid-April. Glen Echo, the S440GE2 board, is dependent on support for the 850MHz running at 100MHz system bus speed. It uses the L440GX+, and will support 1GHz CuMines, have Ultra 160 SCSI, Windows 2000 SDG 2.0 full logo certification, and support for the ISC 2.x graphical user inferface, and Linux support. It will fit within the Hudson or the Byrd chassis. Glen Echo will support 0.18 micron (Coppermine) and 0.25 micron (Katmai) microprocessors, and will be enabled for 1GHz CuMines, eventually. Power will be similar to the Lancewood and Hemlock boards. Production is likely in June or July, but Intel will start shippping evaluation boards in the middle of April. It will support memory models up to 2GB. Four gigs of SDRAM memory will cost around ten times the system price. It will have two Intel Raid offerings. According to the documents we saw two days back, third-party board vendors using i840 designs are suffering from MRH-S (memory translator) difficulties, and the S440GE2 will not suffer from these difficulties, and so will be easier to sell (!). Intel's Raid offerings are codenamed Talo and Bonia, and are or will be validated across all server boards, with an aggressive price and will be feature and performance competitive. Talo is already shipping, but Bonita (SRCU31) will launch in the middle of Q2, which starts in two days time. Intel expects to validated these producs for the T440BX, N440BX and SC450NX chipsets very shortly. Bonita will include 64/33 PCI and Ultra 160 SCSI. In the first half of 2001, Intel will introduce its Chulito raid offering, with dual channel Ultra SCSI and 64/66 PCI, and also including battery backup. ® Contents: Intel Server Board strategy to 2002 Page 1 Brace, brace!
