Dual-Pentium board sports AGP interface


The Millenium C2000 is a dual-Pentium board with a standard AGP graphics interface. The boards' pair of Coppermine 256 Embedded Pentium processors operate at up to 1GHz and each of them is equipped with 256KB of on-die L2 cache. They're connected to an Intel 82443BX North Bridge, whose 100MHz front-side bus provides access to up to 2GB of 100MHz SDRAM or RSDRAM.

To accommodate third-party off-the-shelf advanced graphics port (AGP) graphics, a standard AGP connector connects to the North Bridge via a 32-bit, dual-edge 66MHz bus. The C2000's PCI bus, which also connects to the North Bridge, provides access to two 10/100Mbps Fast Ethernet ports and an Ultra-Wide SCSI port. It also connects to an Intel South Bridge, which provides access to standard PC peripherals (mouse, keyboard, and so on), two Ultra DMA-33 IDE interfaces, two USB ports, a 120MB Super Floppy interface, and two serial ports. Except for one USB port and one serial port, all of the C2000's I/O is accessible by means of a rear panel transition module.

The C2000 features a diagnostic and failure reporting system that includes power-on-self-test (POST) diagnostics, which use eight binary front panel displays to indicate status for the POST function currently executing. The C2000 also monitors certain onboard and CPU parameters such as voltage and temperature using front panel LEDs to report failures.

The C2000 is available now.
