Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Computex Motherboard manufacturers FIC and Asus have officially confirmed they have pinned their flags to the K7 mast and have motherboards for the microprocessor. Although AMD has insisted that no-one publicly shows the K7 at Computex, representatives at both companies confirmed they were showing their motherboards in suites at the Grand Hyatt. FIC's motherboard uses the AMD/DEC Irongate chipset, while Asus's board is using the Via chipset, representatives from the two companies said. Asus said that chipset support for the K7 was quite limited at present but would increase as the year draws on. ® See also K7 to get PC-133 support from Via K7 mobile to arrive next year K7 mobos start to appear
