Intel has begun sampling the 0.13 micron Pentium 4 die-shrink, codenamed Northwood, Taiwanese mobo makers have said.

Asustek and Gigabyte both told EBN that they are preparing Northwood-based boards for a Q4 2001 launch. That's when Northwood itself is scheduled to ship, according to Intel's roadmap. The part will debut at 2GHz or higher and will be based on the upcoming P4 Socket 478 interface.

Other vendors' representatives, bearded on their Computex booths, claimed that all the key Taiwanese mobo makers have received early versions of Northwood

Gigabyte said it had begun testing Northwood boards based on Intel's 845 chipset, aka Brookdale. Interestingly, the company said its Northwood boards will use DDR SDRAM. The DDR version of Brookdale is expected to ship early Q1 2002, not long after Northwood ships. ®
