BANGALORE, August 23: Intel has released its re-engineered 810 chipset for the value
PC, providing next generation features and graphics performance for 2D and 3D graphics.
The new chipset has been optimized to integrate chipset design that utilizes
second-generation graphics technology. This chipset offers innovative features with
performance while lowering overall system costs. The Intel 810 chipset family delivers
Intel Pentium III processors to mainstream computing and Intel Celeron processor for value
PC segment.

Intel 810 chipset integrates 3-D AGP graphics and enables software-based audio, modem
and DVD capabilities. The chipset brings new technologies to low-cost PCs while
integrating capabilities that would otherwise require dedicated hardware add-in cards. The
Intel 810 chipset uses the new Direct AGP and Dynamic Video Memory technologies to provide
AGP 2X-class performance for 3-D software applications. The 810 chipset adds capabilities
including instantly available PC technology, which allows computers to quickly resume
operation with low levels of power, and Intel Accelerated Hub Architecture, which doubles
the size of the communications channel within the chipset for better multimedia
performance. The Intel 810 chipset also removes outdated “legacy” technology
such as ISA in order to improve reliability and ease-of-use.

Intel Asia Electronics Inc. General Manager-Marketing Kanwaljit Singh, said
“Intel’s 810 chipset re-engineers the value PC by providing a platform that will
bring next generation features and great graphics performance to value PC while reducing
overall platform cost.” The price of the 810 chipset ranges from $24 – $30 in India.

Intel is aiming at getting the best possible coverage in the market and believes that
there is a lot of momentum in the Indian market, which sure is a healthy sign. They plan
