You'll have to wait a tad for Intel SpeedStep II

Maybe three months or so before the Next Step

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

There were some funny moments at an Intel press conference held in the gruesome Edwardian Suite at Le Meridien the other night. But not that many. At the presentation, which was well attended, with a clutch of analysts and a gaggle of British hacks, Intel started to show a brief video which seemed to be suggesting that using SpeedStep mobile technology would allow you to spend more time with your kids. This one made us giggle a bit, because senior executive VP Pat "Kicking" Gelsinger has quite a few kids, and even though he must be worth millions upon millions, does not spend nearly as much time with them as he wants to. After the giggles started, the video was hastily brought to a close. The combined masses of hacks, however, did not spot the real SpeedStep story, which instead was scooped by our own managing director, who came along to the press conference with us. He's a user of notebook technology, and afterwards chatted to some of the third party vendors, who were showing off their wares to the press. He was prepared to pay for a machine using SpeedStep technology there and then. While many vendors will sell notebooks using SpeeStep, he was told by one vendor to wait for another three months, at which time Intel will intro a new and much better and faster version of the technology. He was told to wait for this newer rev. One small curiosity emerged from the press material. Intel appears to have re-named the front side bus (FSB) to the processor side bus (PSB) as part of this announcement. What can be the meaning of that, we ask ourselves. ®
