Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Our friends at JC's are reporting that Intel has plans to squash the development of dual Celeron systems by disabling the processor. At Computex, earlier this month, one or two Taiwanese mobo manufacturers, in particular Abit, were demonstrating systems that took advantage of SMP processing on the ultra-cheap Celeron platform. But now JC is claining that Intel is already disabling the AN15 pin that permits such SMP (symmetric multiprocessing) systems to be built. Intel does not want people buying ultra-cheap SMP systems using dual 370 socket processors, the report suggests. ®
