Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

PC vendors are being told by their distributors and brokers that supply on Slot 1 Intel cartridges is constrained. That follows the launch of Intel's "Coppermine" 733MHz processor at the beginning of the week, and a further story showing there were big delays on its flip-chip S370 technology and its mobile parts. Intel has generated demand it cannot supply. One manufacturer, who declined to be named, said: "Intel has announced a 733MHz product it can't ship in volume, while on the other hand the AMD 700MHz Athlon is available in big numbers". He said he'd even had calls from companies asking if he could sell them Slot One parts, a move he described as "highly unusual". He said he believed Intel's technology announcement on Monday was intended to dampen enthusiasm for AMD's high end processors. He added that he did not expect to see FC-PGA Slot 370 Coppermines until the beginning of the year 2000. ®
