Intel is attempting to queer the pitch of other PC-133 memory players by introducing its own standard in 10 days time, according to US wire Electronic Buyers' News Earlier this week, we reported that Intel will introduce a so-called "Vancouver" motherboard next month that will allow system builders to switch between Direct Rambus and PC-133 modules. (Story: 133MHz FSB plot to thicken sooner than thought) According to EBN, Intel wants to get control over the qualification stage of PC-133 parts, which will start to appear in volume from memory manufacturers in Q4. It will announce its plans at the Intel Developer Forum at the end of this month, the magazine says. The Register will, once again, be attending the IDF. Other companies involved in promoting the PC-133 spex, including Via -- involved in litigation with Intel -- are likely to take a dim view of this move, if true. Intel dominated the qualification procedure for the former PC-100 memory standard, but is late to the game with PC-133 after it was forced to do a humiliating u-turn because of problems with Direct Rambus. ®
