Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

A hardware site has taken an in-depth look at the Intel i810 chipset and has concluded that it has severe limitations. Lost Circuits has posted an article on the i810 exploring its benefits and its limitations. According to the piece, there are insurmountable handicaps inherent in the i810 chipset, no matter which CPU is used. "A 66MHz memory bus has to be inadequate for integrated processing," it states. "Our results running at lower CPU clockspeed but using the 133 MHz FSB clearly also show that there is some potential in the design that can be unlocked by means of a higher memory transfer and a higher rate of data integration in the chipset. Unfortunately for Intel, however, the CPU multiplier lock prevents in most cases the use of even the 100 MHz bus speed." According to the author, the 810 can claim the "dubious award" of being the "perfect monkey wrench" for otherwise very high performance CPUs. ®
