Intel Developer Forum A source intimate with Intel's plans told The Register today that nearly half of the original developers of Profusion-Corollary have left the company. That is likely to concern major OEMs like Compaq, Dell and HP, which have plans to implement this technology soon. According to the reliable source, Compaq is now seriously considering whether it wishes to implement Intel's plans. This morning, John Minor, who heads up Intel's server division in the US, insisted that everything was on track for the introduction of eight way SMP technology. This situation reminds The Register of problems major vendors had making the Pentium Pro run eight way. Data General and ALR, subsequently taken over by Gateway, had solutions. But humidity problems with die in the same package as the Pentium Pro meant that large companies like Compaq were unable to roll out their plans on time. ®
