Intel Preps New “Extreme Edition” Chips for Socket 478, Socket 775@ 2004/08/01
Intel on Friday sent its partners a document informing them about implementation of a new packaging system for Intel’s tray processors. In an enclosure to the document the company indicated product codes of the chips to be supplied in the new packaging. Among the list of products a number of unannounced central processing units were mentioned.
The main message Intel sends to its clients with updated chip plans is that the company wants to continue offering 90nm products for older generation Socket 478 infrastructure, but also to introduce a number of 130nm processors for the emerging Socket 775 infrastructure.
