Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Intel Developer Forum Notebooks next year will adopt AGP 4x and a 133MHz equivalent of the front side bus, according to Intel. In a presentation at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF), Bill McAuliffe, who heads up the notebook unit in the US, also said that notebooks will use a type of Rambus memory called the SO-RIMM. As this slide shows (84K), notebooks will adopt desktop features next year. McAuliffe said that notebook architecture followed desktop architecture by nine months. Before Intel moves the industry to this new standard, which McAuliffe said will be good until the year 2003, notebooks in Q4 of this year will appear with 100MHz FSB and using PC100 synchronous DRAM, he said. But, he claimed, the PC100 SDRAM standard will run out of steam, necessitating a move to the Rambus SO-RIMMs. McAuliffe also produced an interesting chart (109K) which shows when the various memory vendors will produce Rambus technology. 64Mb parts are not being made by the vendors, this chart (109K) shows. ®
