Intel Introduces Fast Processor and Innovative Chipset for Value PCs.

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 26, 1999--

Celeron(TM) Processor 466 MHz Enhances Speed; Intel(R) 810

Integrates 3-D Graphics, Enables Software-Based Audio, Modem and DVD

Intel Corporation today introduced the Celeron(TM) processor 466 MHz and the Intel(R) 810 chipset, two products that bring increased performance and capabilities to value PCs. The Celeron processor 466 MHz is now Intel's fastest processor for value PCs, providing great performance for today's applications and a great way for consumers to get on the Internet for under $1,000.

Specifically designed for value PCs, the new Intel 810 chipset integrates 3-D AGP graphics and enables software-based audio, modem and DVD capabilities. The Intel 810 chipset brings higher levels of performance and new technologies to low-cost PCs while integrating capabilities that would otherwise require dedicated hardware add-in cards. This unique design helps PC manufacturers reduce costs and deliver more value to users.

"These products demonstrate how Intel is using its manufacturing and system design expertise to optimize the cost and capabilities of value PCs," said Paul Otellini, executive vice president and general manager, Intel Architecture Business Group.

The Intel 810 Chipset: Leading Value PC Design, Great Price

The Intel 810 chipset uses several new innovations to deliver enhanced performance for value PCs. For example, the new Direct AGP and Dynamic Video Memory technologies provide AGP 2X-class performance for today's 3-D software applications. In addition to integrating technologies, the Intel 810 chipset adds new capabilities including Instantly Available PC technology, which allows computers to quickly resume operation with low levels of power, and Intel Accelerated Hub Architecture, which doubles the size of the communications channel within the chipset for better multimedia performance. The Intel 810 chipset also removes outdated "legacy" technology such as ISA in order to improve reliability and ease-of-use.

Product Features, Price and Availability

Intel Celeron processors are now offered at 466, 433, 400, 366 and 333 MHz speeds. Available in Plastic Pin Grid Array (PPGA) packaging in 1,000-unit quantities, the Celeron processor 466 MHz is priced at $169. The processor will be available initially in systems from several major PC manufacturers, as well as in boxed format from Intel product dealers and resellers.

Three versions of the Intel 810 chipset will be available in June: the Intel 810DC100, capable of interfacing with 4 MB of optional display cache, for $32, the Intel 810 chipset for $29.50, and the Intel 810-L chipset, a reduced cost version, for $25.50. Chipset prices are in 10,000 unit quantities. Intel, the world's largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products.
