Security for virtualized datacentres

Online site Dabs Direct has pre-empted Intel's expected announcement of a raft of Coppermine microprocessors this coming Monday by offering them for sale two days early. That follows our story yesterday, when we revealed that UK PC company Mesh was offering systems using the .18 micron processors. Thanks to James Stormont, a reader who noticed that Dabs does not list every processor that Intel will introduce Monday, but instead lists seven or eight of the desktop products. Those include the Pentium III 500E, with 256K of cache and using socket 370, with the sexy Intel code BX80526F500256, for which Dabs is charging £165. It also lists the Pentium III 733EB 256KB S1 with a 133MHz front side bus, which will cost £525, and the 666EB chip, a slot one part, which also has a 133MHz front side bus, and costs £410. The Pentium III 700E with 256K costs £510. Value added tax (VAT) at 17.5 per cent, is added to these prices. You can find the full list by clicking on this tortuous URL. As revealed here earlier, Intel will also introduce mobile and Xeon parts, as well as the i840 chipset. The Register revealed prices and configurations of these parts some weeks ago. A number of links to our previous stories can be found by clicking on this Mesh story. Intel will not comment on unannounced products and prices to journalists, but it seems vendors just can't wait. ®
