Chip giant Intel is ready to release a spate of chipset products in Q2 and Q3 of this year, but sources within the firm have revealed that some of the introductions have already slipped on internal banana skins. Sources working for Intel Europe showed The Register its desktop product roadmap up until the end of this year, but there are already problems with some of Intel's offerings. In this quarter, Q2, Intel is set to release a number of products including Lockport, Easton, Wichita, Yampai and Baton Rouge. Lockport is the D820LP, scheduled for release in May, which supports Rambus RIMMs, is based on the 820 chipset, includes 4X AGP, comes on the ATX form factor and includes PCI audio and local area network support. Easton is based on the 815EEA chipset, again supports PGA 370 chips, includes AGP connectivity, PCI audio and networking, and again follows the ATX form factor. Wichita, the D815EWT, codenamed Wichita, is a legacy free system, again supporting PGA 370, includes AGP and comes in the flexATX form factor. Yampai the codename of the YA810E, scheduled to be released in the last quarter but which has slipped into this. It, as its name suggests, is based on the 810E chipset, includes the 810E gfx, LAN capability, audio, and comes with legacy IO, although it is available in the flexATX form factor. Baton Rouge (BA810E) has also slipped into this quarter. It is called "legacy reduced", includes 810E gfx, modem capabilities, support for PGA 370 and LAN capability. In the second half of this year there is a whole new spate of codenames to contend with. In Q3, Intel will introduce its Melbourne (D820EMB), based on the 820E chipset, supporting Rambus and PGA370, having an ATX form factor and 4X AGP connectivity. In the same quarter, will come the Stornaway board, the 820EST, which supports synchronous memory, is PGA370 compliant, comes in the microATX form factor, has 4X AGP connectivity, and uses the 820E-memory translator hub. The same sources reveal that a number of projects have dropped off Intel's roadmap. They include Holbrook, Portsmouth, and Great Smokey-2. Bimini has now completely disappeared from Intel's plans for 2000. Later, we will discuss three Timna (system on a chip) offerings which the chip giant is readying. ® Related Stories Leak!
