New hybrid storage solutions

Intel Developer Forum One of the tracks at IDF gave a system overview for the Merced family, due for release next year. There are many interesting slides in this series, which we've taken the time to capture and incorporate in a Powerpoint presentation. You can download the slides here. Be warned, it's a 666K zipped file... The slides contain information about both the workstation (2-way model), and the server (4-way model), as well as block diagrams and the system bus. Interestingly, both the workstation and the server use DRAM. Most of the slides have been shrunk to save space, except for the first, which shows the AL460GX functional diagram. If you can't be bothered to download the whole lot, but want to see this, go here. While we were in Palm Springs, we also took some snaps of a machine being shown. Go here to see these. ® Full September 1999 IDF coverage
