Intel unveils new processor and chipset.
Intel Corp has introduced a new processor - the 800Mhz Celeron - and a new chipset - the Intel 810E2 - for budget PCs.
The 800MHz Celeron processor is Intel's first product in the value desktop PC processor line to include a 100MHz system bus - a technology that offers a wider communications path between the processor and the rest of the system than earlier technologies, resulting in faster overall system performance.
The Intel 810E2 chipset, which supports the 100MHz system bus, is designed to bring new features to value PCs including an advanced I/O controller, support for ATA-100 Ultra DMA hard drives and new USB controllers to support four 'plug-and-play' ports for system attachments and other consumer items.
The 800MHz Intel Celeron processor is available now priced at USD170 while the Intel 810E2 chipset costs USD27, both in 1,000 quantities.
In addition Intel has launched two new desktop boards, offering support for the Intel 810E2 chipset, for original equipment manufacturers. Systems based on the boards are expected later in 1Q'2001.
