Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

A further salvo in the war between AMD and Intel over streaming extensions was fired by the smaller company today. AMD said that Digital Anvil, 3DO and a gaggle of others have already brought thousands of games to the party. But on the 17th, next week, Intel is likely to bring thousands more game companies to the party. Intel refuses to say which games developers, and which PC vendors, exactly, will use its Katmai Pentium III platform. But sources close to Intel said every games vendor and its dog was expected to join its party. Even though the gamesters will have to re-build their apps from the ground up, it is likely they will do so, given Intel's market share. An Intel representative was swift to react. He said: "If ISVs use DirectX they'll get KNI advantages automatically - version 6.1 (out now) has full support for Screaming SIMD." ®
