PowerColor informed about the release of its new ATI Radeon 9100 solution.
The GPU of this new AGP2õ/4õ PowerColor Radeon 9100 cards (being nothing else but Radeon 8500LE optimized for DirectX 8.1) operates at 250MHz. DDR memory clock is the same. The company will offer two versions of PowerColor Radeon 9100: with 128Mb or 64Mb memory, analog, DVI and TV-out sockets.
According to it, multiprocessor Opteron (Sledgehammer MP) will initially appear in three versions. One of them, made using the 0.13-micron process technology, will be aimed at 8-CPU systems supporting DDR333, having 1Mb L2 cache, 3 HyperTransport (HT) buses. Dual-processor SledgeHammer DP chips will have features similar to the third SledgeHammer version for single-CPU systems. For the dual-processor market AMD also prepares the 0.13-micron Barton chips with 512Kb L2 cache, supporting 266MHz FSB and DDR266.
In H1 2004 AMD is to announce 90-nm SOI Athens for 8-CPU systems, featuring 1Mb L2 cache and supporting DDR II-400, along with the new 90-nm SledgeHammer DP – Troy, supporting DDRII-400 as well, and, finally, Venus.
This, according to The Inquirer, is how server processors will be positioned in 2003.

SS S6/286PNSL bases on Mobile Pentium III-M 866MHz, has 30Gb 1.8" thick HDD, 12.1" 1024õ768 TFT LCD display, 256Mb PC133 RAM. The motherboard bases on Trident CyberALADDiN-T+ALi M1535B bundle with integrated graphics.
The notebook features Type2 PCMCIA/CompactFlash/SD, Ethernet, V.90 modem, 3 USB 2.0 ports, lithium-polymer battery (standard up to 2.4 hours; the notebook will be 15-mm thick! Additional – 7.7 hours; 19-mm). S6/286PNSL length and width are 289 and 229 mm, weight – 1.19 kg.
The notebook will be sold with Windows XP Home Edition and Office XP Personal.

Both boards are based on the nForce2 SPP + MCP bundle, feature AGP 8x slots, 5 PCI slots, 3 sockets DIMM (Dual DDR SDRAM 400/333/266MHz), 10/100 Ethernet LAN, USB2.0/1.1, 6-ch. audio. 75FRN-R also has Serial ATA RAID. In other words, the "all-gilded" versions are identical to SL-75FRN-R/SL-75FRN, based on violet PCB.
I have only to wish the amount of both series was enough in retail...
As a man who witnessed the event, I can state it´s really impressive. :) If your network allows you, you can download the demos from here.

The last orders for box and OEM versions of 0.13-micron processors will be accepted up to February 7. The box shipments will continue up to July 11, 2003 ãîäà, OEM shipments – up to December 12, 2003.
So, Intel has completely turned to Socket 478 desktop solutions, having actually made the Socket 370 market secondary, and freed it for VIA in a certain way. ;)
