10/15/1999: What is Celeron III?

As informs
The Register, in a recent confidential calendar of the future throwings of Intel one alludes to a microprocessor named "Celeron III".
The concrete characteristics of such a mike (in the assumption of which it existed) are a mystery, although previous declarations of personnel of Intel indicate that it might be a question of a Celeron with a nucleus similar to the current one, to which he would be added by the new instructions SSE of Intel (those that Pentium III incorporates) and him the bus speed would increase up to 100 MHz (from the current 66 MHz).
The Register goes further away and suggests that this mike might be related to the throwing on the part of Intel of his first "System in a Chip" that is to say, a micro only one with numerous integrated capacities (audio, video, telephony, control I/O...).
Any way the "IIIrd" seems to allude to Pentium III, but it might refer in general to a third review of the Celeron, if the Celeron we were considering to without original cache memory as "Celeron I" and to the current Celeron with 128 KB of cache memory like "Celeron II"... although this does not answer us to the question of what it is in fact.

10/14/1999: The USB 2.0 will offer up to 80 MB/s

The USB 2.0 Promoter Group, formed by Compaq, Hewlett-Packard, Intel, Lucent, Microsoft, NEC and Philips (almost not at all) was announced in by the "USB 2.0 DEVELOPER CONFERENCE", celebrated in Crowned, California, that the version 2.0 of the USB will reach a speed of 480 Mbits/segundo (or what is the same, 80 MBytes/segundo).
This speed is 40 times superior to the reached one by the current version USB 1.1, with which it would preserve an entire compatibility. It even is superior to the one that there offer other interfaces considered to be rapid like IDE (with a maximum of 66 MB/s in his most recent review, UltraDMA66). Nevertheless, technical and economic considerations (like the enormous installed park of hard disks IDE and SCSI) possibly do that it is assined only to external devices, where yes it would replace with roominess to all the current systems.
The specification USB 2.0 should end in the first trimester of the year 2000, while the first peripheral ones would appear on the market in the second semester of the same year.

10/13/1999: There is late the Apple G4 to 500 MHz for a mistake of the microprocessor

The most powerful computer of Apple, the G4 to 500 MHz (so powerful that the government of the USA has prohibited his exportation to "difficult" countries), waited by the end of October, it will have to be delayed by problems with the microprocessor.
Motorola, the company that makes the microprocessors for the computers Apple, indicates that the problem takes root in diverse "mistakes" in the design of the microprocessor G4 that prevent his correct functioning to 500 MHz - although at low speeds no problem appears-. Specifically, the mistake seems to affect to the cache memory of information of the microprocessor, unable one to work with entire reliability to more than 450 MHz.
Motorola hopes that the review 2.8 of the G4 (waited for December, although it might go forward to November before these events) should solve completely the problem. This delay can affect seriously to the sales of Apple for this trimester.

10/13/1999: Throwing of the chipset Intel 810E

Intel announces the official throwing of the new chipset 810E, that incorporates a speed of 133 MHz bus, support for hard disks UltraDMA66, the new architecture AHA (Accelerated Hub Architecture) that makes transferences possible of up to 266 MB/s between the chips of the motherboard, and a video checker integrates 3D (based on i752).
This chipset stems from the Intel 810. While average - fall of the market destines 810 to the scale, with microprocessors Celeron, 810E it appears destined for microprocessors Pentium III, including the new models with a 133 MHz bus. Nevertheless, numerous analysts emphasize that the relatively scarce potency of the integrated checker, who on the other hand is impossible to update, limits his practical utility to the markets servant and ofimático.
