Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Intel Developer Forum Senior Intel VP Pat Gelsinger said this morning that the delivery of Direct Rambus memory was undergoing something of a hiccup. In his keynote speech at the Forum, Gelsinger said there were "slight delays" in the platform. That means that supplies of Rambus Memory are not likely to arrive until Q3 of this year, said Gelsinger. As reported here before,Direct Rambus has problems with yields. That has led other chipset manufacturers, including Via, to push the PC133 standard. Intel is likely to have to use PC133 as well, according to our sources. Gelsinger said that Intel will deliver its hardware random number system later on this year and will add an IP security protocol to its platform. First ease of use systems will arrive in the second half of this year, as reported here yesterday. He said that Microsoft had committed itself to significant enhancements to Windows 98 to assist the ease of use push. "The task of making things simple is not easy," said Gelsinger. "We have to get together with the hard task of making things simple." At the end of his presentation, Gelsinger conducted a "fashion show" with models dressed up in bunny-people suits carrying around various slim designs using the new motherboard we reported yesterday. Has Intel gone completely bonkers? This is part of Intel's so-called "style" initiative. ® See also Intel says Direct Rambus delayed Intel forced to support PC133 SDRAM Hyundai exec admits Rambus shortage 1999 not Year of Rambus, warns Fujitsu exec
