Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

After humming and hawing throughout the year, Intel has now decided to introduce Celeron processors which will use a 100MHz front side bus (FSB). (See 466MHz Celeron, 810 chipset launched at last and earlier stories) The first parts to support the faster bus speed will be the 400MHz, 433MHz and 466MHz parts in Q3 of this year, which will depend on the i810 chipset. They will be followed towards the end of this year with the 500MHz Celeron at 100MHz FSB, which Intel will introduce tomorrow in its 66MHz FSB recension. And in the first quarter of the year 2000, Intel will introduce Celerons with even higher clock speeds, sources very close to the chip giant said today. Intel said at the beginning of this year that it had not yet decided whether to push Celerons to support 100MHz FSBs, even though it had the capability to do so. Meanwhile, tomorrow will herald another rash of price cuts on lesser members of the Celeron family, as the chip giant continues its bid to dominate the entry-level market. In other Celeron news, the 466MHz part will be positioned as Intel's Value Two part in Q3, that will be supplanted by the 500MHz Celeron in Q4, and by Celerons at greater speds in Q1 of next year. Anyone ever got lost in the Hampton Court Maze? It's a lot easier to find your way round than any Intel roadmap, each of which is individually handcrafted with Byzantine skill. ®
