Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Forbes magazine is claiming that Intel and Rambus have found a solution to the technical problems which have dogged the introduction of Chipzilla's i820 Camino chipset. According to the report, which can be found here, wiring specifications which caused the difficulties have now been solved. But Intel has so far unable been to confirm a solution has been arrived at. According to a representative in the UK, engineers are still working to fix the problems. The problems with the introduction of the i820 chipset have caused major problems and cost many PC and component manufacturers headaches and money. A slate of large PC companies, including Dell, were readying systems based on the already delayed chipset when an unexpected problem caused thousands of motherboards to fail. Yesterday, we reported that Intel was briefing analysts today about the Camino/Rambus debacle. Intel also delivers its financial results later on today, but Forbes reports that the company may wait until Friday to make any formal announcement. It also adds that Rambus CEO Geoff Tate would not comment. If the reports are correct, many of the players in the debacle will breathe a sharp sigh of relief. As a result of the debacle, which has lasted throughout this year, the Rambus share price has recently slumped and closed at around $70 yesterday. ®
