4/1/2000: The first chipset ROUTE with dual support for Pentium III

    The Taiwanese chipsets manufacturer has just presented a new version of his successful chipset Apollo Pro 133rd, which offers two innovations faced to the professional market: support to handle basic badges dual Pentium III (that is to say, with two microprocessors) and up to 4 memory GB. Up to the date, Intel was the only manufacturer who was offering chipsets for Pentium III with dual capacity.
    In other technical aspects the chipset is identical to the previous version: AGP support 4x, bus to 133 MHz, memory SDRAM PC133, UltraDMA66 and four ports USB.
    The news opens even more the market for ROUTE, which in the last months has experienced an enormous growth in his sales and his popularity, undoubtedly partly thanks to the problems suffered by Intel with his chipsets, especially in the memory topics; the Intel bet for the memory Rambus has not supposed him any more than problems, while ROUTE has seen his chipsets in the basic badges of the manufacturers' practical totality.
    At present ROUTE has a position of almost monopoly on the chipsets market for the mikes K6-2 and Athlon (with the AMD approval) and his market share in the chipsets for mikes Intel grows day by day; if it manages to interfere successfully on the market of basic badges for workstations, it would be a tremendous blow for Intel.

3/29/2000: The Celeron are updated: 0,18 microns and up to 600 MHz

    Intel has just presented the first microprocessors Celeron made with 0,18 microns technology, with speeds (for the time being) of 533 MHz (named 533rd), 566 MHz and 600 MHz. The new mikes have a relation price / yield frankly good, as it has come happening with all the Celeron except the first two models that were not incorporating cache memory L2 (266 and 300 MHz - not to confuse with the excellent one 300A-).
    Wretch and incomprehensible, these new chips keep on using the same speed of system bus as the previous ones, only 66 MHz, which was reasonable in low speeds, but that begins limiting his yield as we approach 600 MHz. Any way his 128 KB of cache memory L2 integrated working at the same speed of the mike does that this is not a problem for the majority of the users.
    Otherwise, the step to 0,18 microns has allowed to reduce perceptibly his consumption and the heat generation, and one has added to them all the recent technologies Made in Intel: instructions SSE, serial number and socket FC-PGA. Unfortunately, the latter "advance" seems to be that his installation will prevent in the ancient badges PPGA, unless an adapter is used...
