SANS - Survey on application security programs

Alpha Processor Inc (API) may have moved fast to re-assure a number of resellers angry at delays on products but sources close to the firm have confirmed there is still a drought of UP1000 mobos and also 750MHz Slot B modules. API told The Register that the Alpha mobos were available in the channel in response to a letter written by one reseller to the firm. But our information is there are still problems with the specification which are marring delivery of the product to both channel partners and end users. Further, deliveries of the 750MHz Slot B modules have been promised as being available "next week" for around eight weeks, according to the same informant. He said: "I have heard they are having problems getting the 128 x 36 synchronous memory at a speed compatible with the 750MHz clocking." He added that Compaq had a similar problem but finally resolved that glitch by buying in the memory from IBM. API is majority owned by memory manufacturer Samsung. Earlier this year, executives at API were showing roadmaps that suggested the Alpha would proliferate in volume and into mass markets by year end. The latest problems will not have helped API's long term aims. ®
