Security and trust: The backbone of doing business over the internet

Chip upstart AMD has had yet another boost in its fortunes as it emerged it had another design win, this time with big PC player Hewlett Packard. And, like Gateway only a few weeks ago, the news has broken on the Web, rather than through official PR channels. Dell is now increasingly isolated as the only major PC vendor still firmly within Intel's embrace, with AMD's string of scalps now adorning its waist in the run up to the announcement of its financial results, tomorrow. The HP machines are in the Pavilion range, and include a 550MHz machine with a large hard drive, CR-R and the usual set of PC bells and whistles. In other good news for AMD, the Microprocessor Report has named Athlon the best processor of 1999. ®
