Time was that DG used ALR to make its SMP machines and so we always got forward knowledge on Intel's plans. But that's all over now. We dunno who makes DG machines but it's probably some Intel outfit in Taiwan, for all we know... DG said its Aviion AV8900, a high end entreprise NT server is bang on time and it uses the latest Profusion chipset from Intel, which will support up to eight PIII/Xeon chips. There's also full fibre channel disk arrays. DG says it will be available late summer. That means early September, as IBM and HP told us four months ago... When we talked to HP three weeks ago about this matter, he said corporations will not be interested until September this year, anyway. Try a search on Profusion and see what IBM had to say, wayback.
