Leak Central Although the word on the street is that chipset manufacturers are scurrying to produce a motherboard for Intel's up-and-coming Willamette IA-32 processor, the firm's own offering will, as promised, support Rambus and its RIMMs. The boxed motherboard, codenamed Garibaldi, is slated to ship towards the end of this year and, according to roadmaps we have been shown, appears to be the only offering so far available to system builders and PC companies from Intel itself. Garibaldi, which will be based on the Intel Tehama chipset, will use Socket W, the special 432-pin socket for the Willamette processor. It will have 4x AGP connectivity, incorporate CNR and USB version 2.0, and will come in an ATX form factor, we can reveal. Intel said at its Developer Forum in February that while it wishes Willamette to use Rambus memory, the server and workstation version of this microprocessor, codenamed Foster, will use double data rate memory (DDR). Later, we will take an in depth look at Intel's server board strategy, and show its reliance (geddit?!) on ServerWorks chipsets. ® More Intel leaks from Leak Central Intel's Timna to have triple mobo support Desktop motherboards Itanium Lion project Server board strategy part one Server board strategy part two Server board strategy part three Bitter war breaks out inside Intel
