Build a business case: developing custom apps

Reports from our friends in Japan claim that Intel will perform a somersault on its position on PC133 memory because of difficulties over yields on Rambus memories. Our friends in Japan are generally reliable. They tipped us off about the K6-3 being called the K6-III, remember? That news will cause sighs of relief from the rest of the industry, although we can expect to hear low moans from AMD and Cyrix, resolutely tracing Intel's footsteps in the PR snow. Where Intel leads, others must surely follow. Meanwhile, the same reports say that Intel will carry on pushing the 100MHz bus until the end of this year, but 133MHz bus products will reach 733MHz by year end. Before entering the bus gulag, Intel will release a 700MHz/100MHz part. ® See also Intel, chip-set vendors prepare for Rambus shortage
