Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Packard Bell, which two months ago started to use Cyrix chips in its machines in preference to Intel parts, said it will use AMD K6-2s in notebooks and desktops. That indicates a further widening of the gulf between it and Intel. Formerly, PB was one of Intel's most loyal customers. Said Mal Ransom, senior VP of marketing at Packard Bell NEC: "Our new relationship with AMD enhances our ability to bring the latest technology at a great value quickly to market and into consumer's hands." The K6-2/333s will be used in the Packard Bell 955 and NEC Ready 9888, while the notebook model, the NEC Reach 340T will use a 300MHz K6 part. ® Click here for more stories
