New hybrid storage solutions

We are grateful to First International Corporation (FIC) for pre-announcing the Intel Celeron 633MHz processor as it announced the introduction of its FB11 BX mobo. And we are even more grateful to Intel for letting us know, by the back door, so to speak, that it is migrating its Coppermine 0.18 micron technology to the 533MHz Celeron, which currently is produced on a 0.25 micron process. If you go to this Intel page and download the PDF, which contains Celeron datasheets, you only need to virtually leaf to page 23, where there is a reference to a 533A in the VccCore. On page 55, there is another reference to the 533A, this time relating to the thermal specifications of the processor and showing it is in an FC-PGA package. The long-toothed will remember that Intel first adopted the A suffix for its Celeron family after the initial release of cheapo processors was unable to cut it in the competitive microprocessor market. Now what all consumers must do is to make sure that when they buy a 533MHz PC using a Celeron chip that it is the Coppermine version with additional Screaming Cindy instructions, and not the old 0.25 micron jobby, which will be obsoleted by this baby, when it arrives. ® Related Stories FIC gives 440BX hearty resuscitation Celeron IIs arrive: Screaming Cindy is in tow
