12/2/1999: The future chipset i815 will support AGP

According to rumors that are confirmed by the French web site
HardWare.fr, the future chipset 815 of Intel, also named Solano, in addition to having an integrated video checker (like i810e and i810, with that he shares big part of the design) will be able to be used by videocards AGP.
This is something much requested by most of analysts and manufacturers, whom the economic chipsets i810e/i810 have not convinced for his almost void capacity of graphic expansion, since at present only 3Dfx it offers videocards in PCI with a relation acceptable yield / price; most of manufacturers of videocards offer exclusively cards AGP.
The new chipset, which will come to the market between the first one and the second trimesters of 2000, will be also the first chipset of Intel who will support the memory PC133, a type of memory SDRAM of high yield and relatively low, great cost minor than the RDRAM.
