Intel changes verification spexx on chipz

Unilateral declaration of something or other on NEWSPEED

The Intel chip monster has warned, unilaterally and specifically, and on its support pages that something is afoot on chip voltages. On the Intel support page, the giant seems to have declared a shift in its voltages strategy. While this may only be of notional interest to non-technical readers of this title, the move is significant. It signifies a shift in safety for many of its Pentium III chips, thus indicating that many are running far too hot. If you apply too much voltage to Intel Pentium III processors, says this page, untoward things may happen. Says Intel: "It's important that motherboards run at the right speed". Otherwise the VRM might blow up,as reported here earlier. ® See also Intel clocking software found on Web Camino delay to upset BX chipset
