Intel's Timna to have triple mobo support

More details from our Intel mole

Leak Central The low-end system on a chip processor which Intel will introduce in the third quarter of this year will be supported by three motherboard platforms, The Register can reveal. The chip, codenamed Timna, is intended to displace the Celeron microprocessor from its position as an entry-level product, and will target ultra-inexpensive PCs. A source at Intel Europe, who showed us internal motherboard roadmaps last week, said that there will be three offerings from the firm, none of which have Rambus memory support. The Lawton will be a micro ATX form factor board, supporting synchronous memory (SDRAM), the ICH2 chipset, and will include CNR. Dunellen will be a FlexATX motherboard, again supporting SDRAM, using the ICH2 chipset, and supporting PCI/CNR. The last motherboard is codenamed Telluride, and according to the documents we were shown, will be a "highly integrated" solution, again using the ICH2 chipset, supporting SDRAM and coming in a FlexATX form factor. The FlexATX form factor is part of Intel's drive to create so called Concept PCs, which rid machines of the need for serial ports and other "legacy" support from the past. ® More Intel leaks 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
