Taiwanese motherboard manufacturer Gigabyte said late Friday it had introduced four boards that support the 370-pin PPGA Intel Celeron chips.
The specifications of the boards give important clues to Intel's future roadmap in 1998.
The GA-6LX7A supports 300MHz to 433MHz parts, and supports both Slot One and Socket 370 chips, with system speeds of 66MHz, 75Mhz and 83MHz and clock multiples of from three to 6.5. It will support between 8Mbytes and 768Mbytes of DRAM.
The GA-6LM7A is a similar motherboard but supports four chipsets: the Intel 82440 LX AGPset, Winbond's 83977EF Ioset, the 83782 Health Chop and the ESS Solo-1 PCI sound chip.
Both the ATI Rage Pro 2X AGP chip and the Yamaha 724 PCI sound chip onboard come with the GA-6LMM7 board, while the GA-6LA7 comes in a baby AT form factor.
Last week, other motherboard manufacturers and some channel players complained that Intel was dumping Slot One Celerons in the channel as a prelude to the introduction of its 370-pin parts next year.
