Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Jonathan Hou, over at his new site at Fullon3D has posted an interview with Shuttle which suggests AMD is re-thinking its slot strategy for the K7. According to the unnamed executive at Shuttle, AMD's K7 chipset is still in its Alpha phase. Although other chipset vendors are backing AMD's K7, the Shuttle executive said that a "good guess" for the product launch was likely to be in Q4 of this year. If true, that represents a delay of some months for AMD. Intel told The Register last week that it will put the Pentium III into socket form. (Story: Intel says new PIII socket on way for iMac look-alikes) According to the Shuttle exec, it is unlikely that AMD, Cyrix, IDT or Rise will release chips using a 133MHz frontside bus. ®
