The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Computex 2000 The official launch date of Intel's 815e chipset is the 19th of this month but you can forget all that because at the Computex trade show there's stacks of the pesky things.

And not just 815e mobos, but boards of the i820e and the i810e flavour too, over at Intel's stand arranged in a humungous wall display. According to the motherboard manufacturers displaying these items, while they are all still held to a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) for the i815e, Intel has given them especial permission not only to show their own offerings but also to give samples for review and generally dish the details they want.

We'll attempt to post a pic of Intel's Wall of Mobo Death later in this Taipei day, but in the meantime here's a full list of the third party 810e boards, the 815e and the 820e offerings on the stand.

810e Boards

YHI, SuperMicro, Proteam, Microstar, Jetway, Gainward, Epox, Biostar, Asus, PC Partner, Transcend, Shuttle, Kinpo, GVC, Fastfame, DFI, A-Trend, Zida, SYE, Procomp, Legend/QDI, Iwill, FIC, ECS and Luckystar. (Where's Gigabyte?)

815e Boards - a long list

Abit, Tyan, Quanta, Soltek, Microstar, Kinpo, GVC, Gainward, Epox, DFI, Biostar, Acer Open, Mitac, Proteam, Luckystar, Iwill, Gigabyte, Fastfame, ECS, Chaintech, Tekram, Procomp, Shuttle, Maxtion, Jetway, Asus, GVC, FIC, Delta.

820e Boards - Son of Caminogate

Microstar, FIC, Chaintech, Abit, Supermicro, Gigabyte, DFI, Acer Open, Asus, ECS, Epox, Intel (cough), Tekram, Legend, Iwill, Epox. Next to this part of the wall of mobos were about 20 types of Rambus RIMMs - these must be the ones that Intel hasn't managed to stockpile as part of its recall.

Intel was also showing its famous 1GHz CuMine on its stand but there was no sign of a 933MHz as far as we could see. ®
