Intel gives up on SDRAM version of Caminogate

It's Rambus or nothing from now on

As we reported earlier today, MTH flaw forces Intel Timna delay Intel has moved the entry level Timna system on a chip out to Q1 2001 due to an inability to make the accursed memory translator hub (MTH) work properly.

Chipzilla is now working on a new memory interface – wisely dropping the MTH nomenclature – enabling Timna to support SDRAM. An Intel Europe spokesman refused to be drawn on the memory specification, saying only that Timna would work with 'widely available' SDRAM technology, which could mean either PC100 or PC133 – our money's on the latter.

The spokesman also confirmed that Intel has now thrown in the towel in the battle to get SDRAM to work with the i820 Camino chipset. Until today, the plan was to develop a new MTH part with reduced susceptibility to noise for delivery in Q3, but now the message is 'Rambus or bust' as far as the 820 is concerned. ®
