Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Computex The PC-133 memory standard espoused by ViA and non-Intel chipset company has received massive endorsement from Taiwanese motherboard manufacturers. And IBM is also likely to give its formal backing Monday next. That is likely to mean that even more pressure will be put on Intel to adopt the memory standard, as Direct Rambus fades into the distance. And IBM will hold a meeting in Vancouver, next Monday, to discuss how it also will provide support for PC-133 rather than Direct Rambus technology. The overwhelming majority of motherboard manufacturers exhibiting at Computex announced support for PC-133. And on ViA’s stand, the company had a poster showing benchmarks comparing Apollo PC-133 to the Intel 440-BX chipset. ViA had tested Winston 99 against the BX, and had figures showing that its overall performance was 4.91 compared to the BX’s 4.58. According to the ViA claim, the CPUmark32 was 1360, comparde to 1250 for the BX; the Biz Desk Winmark 99 was 2620 against 2110; while the 3D Winmark showed 668 rather than 650 for the BX chipset. These figures are likely to be hotly contested by Intel. ®
