Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Boxed motherboard Cape Cod (the CC820) may be swimming around the channel in shoals, but its counterpart, the Rambus one from Vancouver (the VC820) is still pretty hard to find. After ringing round major UK distributors including Avnet, Flashpoint, Hall Mark and others to try and buy an Intel boxed Rambus i820 motherboard, we gave up. There might be lots of fishy Cape Cod i820 mobos swimming round in the channel, but the Vancouver i820 is as rare as a sturgeon. An Intel representative commented: "It takes a little while for the motherboards to become available through the channel." Last week, we reported that Intel's workstation mobo, the OR840, is still hard to net. Yesterday, we reported that HP will introduce an alternative mobo on the 13th of December that uses the Reliance chip set. Today, First International Computer (FIC), introduced a mainboard which has support for two DIMMs. So they're obviously as rare as herrings, haddocks, and even mackerel. Let's hope the species doesn't go extinct before it's even evolved... ® Intel Cape Cod mobo stinks
