Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Sources said that Intel has an important meeting with industry standards body Jedec at the beginning of next year. Jedec is a semiconductor standards body which brings together a number of important manufacturers to agree specifications for future technology. One of those future technologies is SDRAM and double data rate (DDR) memory, standards which Intel is being forced to accept in the face of industry teeth. According to our source, Intel will meet the Jedec standards people early in the new year and will discuss how it and the industry can successfully promote PC-133 and double data rate (DDR) memory. Intel will also talk to AMI on how to implement support for these controversial memory standards in the BIOS. As we reported earlier this year, Intel is attempting to rush out chipsets Solano II and Amador after coming under pressure from its PC customers to, as it were, go with the flow, rather than back Rambus Ink all the way. If you wish to view what Jedec standards are like, have a decko at these DDR and SDRAM pages. ®
