Santa Clara, CA - September 27, 2000 - Intel Corp. expanded its investment of fast processors, chipsets and development kits in the rapidly growing applied computing market segment, extending its availability of high-performance computing technology to applications such as Internet infrastructure and networked equipment.
Intel's new offerings include two of its fastest Pentium III processors, the latest complementary chipsets and a new scalable performance board development kit.
By expanding the life-cycle and technical support for these processors, Intel said it makes it practical for makers of applied-computing equipment to take advantage of this high-performance technology. In addition, Intel said it enhances availability of design tools, development platforms, support for real-time operating systems and complete platform solutions through third-party vendors, including its Applied Computing Platform Provider program members.
Specifically, Intel has extended support for the Pentium III processors at 850 MHz and 866 MHz and the Intel 815 and 815E chipsets, and is introducing the Intel 815E Scalable Performance Board Development Kit.
These products are members of the Intel Internet Exchange Architecture (IXA), an end-to-end line of high-performance, flexible, and scalable hardware and software building blocks.
"In virtually every industry, product designers are learning how to harness the capabilities of our latest computer technology, particularly the advanced processors," said Joe Jensen, general manager for Intel's Embedded Intel Architecture Division. "We continue to expand our line of products in response to the rapidly increasing demands of applied computing equipment developers."
