The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

Intel Developer Forum Chip giant Intel will use its Developer Forum this week to give its Camino i820 chip a boost as launch date nears. The chipset, delayed for around six months, will include a random number generator, support for smart cards, so called boot integrity services and Internet protocol security. But the real question is how Intel will tackle the thorny question of support for Direct Rambus. It is expected tomorrow to outline plans for support for the rival PC-133 standard, which has gained broad acceptance by OEMs and motherboard manufacturers. Just yesterday, Taiwanese companies Via and SiS announced they had record months selling their competing chipsets. Intel's problems here have been exacerbated by shortages of older chipsets such as the ZX and BX, and limited acceptance of the i810 chipset for low cost motherboards. Launch date of the Camino chipset is likely to be at the end of September, as reported here earlier. ® Full IDF Summer 99 coverage
