Adattatore da socket 423 a 478
PowerLeap annuncia, con il seguente comunicato, di aver prodotto un adattatore che rende possibile l'utilizzo dei nuovi processori Celeron e Pentium4 anche su socket 423:
"MILLSTONE NJ (BUSINESS WIRE) - May 29, 2002 - Today PowerLeap is pleased to announce the release of the PL-P4 upgrade solution for existing socket 423 Pentium 4 systems to use Intel's latest 1.8GHz Celeron as well as other socket 478 CPUs (currently up to 2.4GHz). PowerLeap believes this product to be timely as the supply of 423-pin Pentium 4 CPUs continues to dwindle and important since there are many manufacturers and distributors with socket 423 motherboards still in inventory.
This product has appeal to system builders and solution providers that have older socket 423 motherboards and systems in stock. It will also provide options for businesses and consumers with older P4 systems in the coming year," comments Channel Sales Manager, Craig Cheetham.
PowerLeap is expected to begin shipping the PL-P4 adapter on June 17 following its official introduction at the Computex show in Taipei, Taiwan (June 3-7). The retail price will be around $35 (US). Optional bundling of the adapter with the Celeron 1.8GHz and Pentium 4 2.0GHz are likely.
