Intel readies Rambus alternative

Intel is developing a new chip set, code-named Solano, that combines support for SDRAM and a 133MHz system bus.

Designed as a high-bandwidth alternative to Intel’s problem-ridden Rambus-based chip sets, Solano is expected to ship in desktop PCs in the first quarter.

According to sources, Intel also is working on a double-data-rate PC266 SDRAM chip set, code-named Amador. Designed for servers, the chip set is expected to become available late next year or early in 2001.
