Reducing security risks from open source software

Intel's singular failure to deliver the whizzo new Camino chipset with its 133MHz frontside bus has thrown plans for the PIII range into more than a little confusion. The next PIII was due to be a 533MHz part, shipping around June, but Chipzilla's legendary ability for missing the (RAM) bus has scuppered that one. Enter instead the 100MHz FSB PIII 550 using the venerable BX chipset. Intel insiders reckon the 550MHz bruiser will cost around $750 big ones when it appears, meaning its 500MHz and 450MHz siblings will get the usual $100 or so knocked off their price tags. Now the only question remaining is whether there are any BX motherboards out there that have beefy enough voltage regulators to handle the demands of the new part which is expected to hit the shelves sometime in May or June. ®
