Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Sources close to Intel's plans have said that the company will release its Carmel (i840) chipset towards the end of the month, and, at the same time, introduce a motherboard aimed at the workstation market. The board, dubbed the OR840, is expected to cost around $250 for the boxed version and will support up to two Intel CPUs. It will come with support for up to 2Gb of memory, and four 168-pin RIMM (Rambus) sockets, supporting speeds of 600MHz and 800MHz. That indicates that Intel's problem with Rambus memory may be confined to the i820 Camino chipset only. While Intel has supplied details of the motherboard to its channel partners, that does not guarantee anything. Right up until the company admitted a problem with Rambus, it was pushing its i820 Vancouver and Cape Cod mobos to its distributors. The OR840 has built in support for floppy drive, ultra DMA and integrated Fast Ethernet 10/100 Base TX. Video, which is not integrated, has a 266MHz data transfer rate, while the board has two USB ports, one 32-bit PCI slot, and five other bus slots. Bus slot four uses AGP 4x. The board is likely to be part of a re-positioning of its entire workstation and server strategy in the months to come. ® Factoid.
