Acer Labs and Trident today jointly announced a notebook-oriented chipset that supports DDR and SDR SDRAM, integrates 3D acceleration, and supports Intel's Tualatin 0.13 micron Pentium III-family processor even though said CPU hasn't been officially launched yet.

The chipset, the CyberAladdinT, is a first, the partners claim, being the only product of its kind yet announced.

Tualatin is due ship early next quarter, though the part will be sampling next month. It will ship in both desktop and mobile versions. The desktop part will debut at 1.26GHz, the mobile chip at 1.13GHz and 1.06GHz.

The timing of the Acer/Trident announcement suggests that Tualatin samples can't be far off - they may even have begun shipping.

CyberAladdinT itself will sample sometime in Q3, though with AMD ramping up its 1.4GHz Mobile Athlon 4 alongside its supporting VIA chipsets, Acer and Trident are unlikely to want to wait too long before shipping in volume. ®
