View Full Version : March 12-Intel what is it?

03 March 2003, 03:00 AM
Checked their site but their not being that forthright about saying what.

Is it a new product or are they just running another ad to bolster their image?

Their getting ready to announce....

The 3.2 P4's...

Their new 800 FSB Chips, Chipset. (i865PE)

The PC3200 Dual Channel DDR that goes along with that.

Roll some dice and pick one...though it might not be what their announcing :).

Think that may mean 800 FSB Xeons then?

The only 800 FSB boards I've seen discussed or announced are single processor boards.

I'm sure there will be eventually, but being as the E7505 was just introduced to the market, it's probably 6-18 months away. (Desktop always gets faster before Workstation)

They just announced that Canterwood (the first 800 MHz fsb chipset, the one aimed at enthusiasts) will be released in April, so I think the March 12th thing is something else. They talked about a lot of stuff at IDF though, so there are quite a few possibilities; they have cellular stuff, Centrino, and some new PC form factors in the works, all of which are possibilities as well...

i think intel have done a good thing by jumping the next logical step in motherboards (166FSB, or quad pumped to 667) and pushing it a little further to the 200MHz FSB. i see 433MHz ram is starting to appear from the high end manufacturers (corsair has sticks in australia now).

all of these stupidly high multipliers really have been bottlenecking CPUs lately. bring back the single digit multipliers and high FSBs, i say!!!

I agree -- and another thing that I like about their roadmap is that they are also working on form factor and sound improvements.

Think that the next Xeon platform will be 667 while the single CPU chipsets will be 800. To maximize the profits in the high-end field. Could be wrong though.

It's a laptop. Super-thin laptop.

It's interesting to say the least.
