King Young announces Sumicom 600 ultraminiature PC on Pentium 4

Taiwanese King Young, already famous with miniature Sumicom 300 PCs on VIA C3 or Intel Pentium III, has released even more impressive Sumicom 600 systems on Pentium 4, which width and height almost equals to a usual CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive (still featuring a slim one as well).

The new PC base on SiS651 + SiS962 chipset bundle, also used in Shuttle SS51G barebone. Despite tiny dimensions, the system has two DIMM sockets, supporting up to 2Gb DDR SDRAM, all necessary interfaces, including USB2.0, FireWire, 10/100 Mb/s LAN, audio, etc.

Sumicom 600 dimensions are just 148x254x71 mm, weight – just 2.5 kg! Naturally, the system will cost more than Sumicom 300. Further details are here.

Infineon announces 2Gb PC2100 DDR SDRAM

Not many systems support 2Gb PC2100 DDR SDRAM, though not everyone needs them as well. But if there’s demand, there’s offer.

As far back as in summer Infineon announced 512Mbit samples for building 2Gb PC2100 DDR SDRAM, and now they reached the retail (currently Japanese). Modules are based on Infineon HYB2525D512400AT-7 chips (512Mb, 128Mx4, DDR266A, 2-3-3), which production was launched in Q3, according to the official information, and feature CL=2.

Pricing will vary with the height: 1.2" modules will cost about $2560, 1.7" modules – about $2480.
