Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

Our friends over at Korean website K-Bench are reporting that the i820 Camino chipset has run into further difficulties. Samples supplied to Intel customers are incompatible with existing graphics boards, it claims. According to the report, which may be found here, Taiwanese mobo manufacturers say there is a problem between AGP 4.x and a number of existing graphics boards. Boards affected include TNT2, the Matrox G400 and the Savage 4, when running in AGP 4x mode, says K-Bench. The Camino chipset has represented something of a weight round Intel's neck for the whole of this year. If true, the difficulties will compound the situation for the Taiwanese firms, which have already been placed on severe allocations by the Great Satan of Chipsets (Chipsetzilla). Last week, we reported that the Taiwanese firms were also fed up with implementations of the 810 chipset, forcing them to consider options including chipsets from Via and SiS. ®
