Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

IDF The CEO of Intel, Craig Barrett, who had earlier been described by underling Patrick Gelsinger as "the ruthless dictator of Intel", today showed he was only human by thumbing his nose at AMD. During his keynote speech, Barrett told Gelsinger that Intel had to release a 700MHz Coppermine chip in October. That piece of forward thinking is intended to galvanise Intel engineers into action and at the same time put the wind up AMD, in the ruthless game of "my chip is faster than yours". However, even if Intel does succeed in doing Cumine at 700MHz in October, there's no doubt, as reported here earlier, that AMD will already have scaled its Athlon K7 up beyond that point. It's a game of marchitectureand Intel is a notoriously ruthless player in that field. As "Kicking Pat" bravely pointed out to the audience of 2,700 developers, press and analysts in Palm Springs Desert, Barrett's catchphrase is: "If you don't agree with me, you haven't thought about it long enough."
