News from Intel

The second happy Intel message hits the mobile processor area, which is now 5 processors richer. These are two new Mobil-Pentium III with 750MHz and 600MHz, a new Mobil-Celeron with 650MHz and an extremely energy-saving PIII 600MHz and Celeron 500MHz each. In the case of the latter, by reducing the core voltage by 0.5V to 1.1V, it was possible to lower the power consumption to 1 to 2 watts and thus even compete with the energy-saving Transmeta CPUs

And last but not least, there is the official announcement of the 440BX successor. The Solano, aka Intel i815. It supports all Intel processors with 66, 100 and 133 MHz frontside bus clock and comes with a whole host of innovations. The Solano with IHC2 (I/O Controller Hub) provides two Ultra ATA/100 channels, four USB interfaces, 10/100 Mbit Ethernet and AC97 sound with six audio channels. The somewhat cheaper variant would be the combination of Solano and ICH, which then only houses Ultra-ATA/66, two USB interfaces and normal AC97 sound. The first solution will be launched under the name i815E and the second with ICH under the name i815. You can find a test of the new chipset here.
