The essential guide to IT transformation

Once more, Intel has maintained that it will not use PC-133 or PC-266 memory, despite increasing signs that Direct Rambus DRAM's horizon is receding. As reported here earlier, Intel will adopt a half-way house strategy to the slight delay in DRDRAM by introducing a PC-100 version of the i820 chipset. But sources close to the chip giant are telling The Register there is a plan to implement PC-133 memory if DRDRAM shows more signs of adopting a belly-up position. The source said: "Intel is an intelligent company. If I was Intel I wouldn't be putting all my eggs into the Direct Rambus market. I would have thought it would have a backup strategy." Intel, when contacted, said that everything remained unchanged on the PC-133 and PC-266 front. ®
