    the 2nd press release says they have the first fc-pga2 mobo.

    so does the third release, on a different board. go figure.

    The 1 GHz line item will contain both the FC-PGA2 package with an Integrated Heat Spreader (IHS), as well as the
    current FC-PGA package.

    my guess is that the fcpga2 is the pIII .13 micron. i guess they are not compateble with current 370 socket boards

    Intel - Pentium III (Tualatin) - 32-bit - consumer

    According to Intel's most recent chip roadmap, they will still be producing Pentium III chips when they move to a .13 micron production process, from the older .18 micron process - sometime in 2001. The new core is code-named Tualatin, and will have 512K of L2 cache. It will also introduce the FC-PGA2 form factor that is 3.5mm high and contains a built-in heat spreader so that the chip cannot be damaged, unlike the 1.9mm FC-PGA standard.


    someone help me make sence of this.
    i dont think i like the new p4 but if pIII is going to continue, hehe
