Protecting users from Firesheep and other Sidejacking attacks with SSL

With the lovely little 810 Whitney chipset out this week, Intel is aiming to clean up at the low end of the graphics market. But what about higher up the scale? Chipzilla managed a small blip on the radar screen with the i740 in both its own Express3D and OEM AGP cards, offering acceptable but not earth-shattering performance. And, as is always the case in the Wacky World of Graphics, today’s Top of the Pops is tomorrow’s Haircut 100. Alongside graphics, even Intel’s CPU introduction rate looks positively glacial - a month late to market and your terrific new graphics accelerator is headed for the bargain bin in PCs'R'Us. But despite getting a bloody nose with the i740, Chipzilla isn’t beaten yet. The i740 will soldier on till the middle of this year when the beefed-up 810e appears alongside the high-end i754. And in the next couple of weeks, the i740 replacement, the snappily-named i752, is due to debut. Although sharing the same core as the i754, the i752 will only feature AGP2X unlike its big brother’s AGP4X. Further down the track, at around Easter 2000, the professional graphics market has Capitola to look forward to. Intel should be coming up with some preliminary performance figures for the i752 any day now – watch this space. ®
