Seven Steps to Software Security

Documents Intel has sent its system manufacturers are outlining its plans for the phasing in of the flip chip technology and the departure of the Slot One configuration (SECC2). According to the documents, Intel will offer Slot One versions of its Coppermine processors within 30 days of offering equivalent processors in the FC-PGA (flip chip configuration). It will do so until the end of this year. The 1GHz frequency is likely to be the last in the Coppermine series. Intel has acknowledged it may not be able to provide wide availability of Slot One, however. Intel is also scrapping three server motherboards based on the i820 and i840 chipsets, according to the inside documents, which were supposed to launch in the next couple of weeks. These, apparently, are called Pine, Hemlock and Willow and are server motherboards. Lancewood may be re-worked to support Coppermine processors. The memory translators for these chipsets do not work as well as Intel wanted. The chip giant could have redesigned the mobos, but instead has decided to recall the whole caboodle. And, to avoid the problem of compatibility, Intel may even produce its own version of a slot one convertor. Meanwhile, word comes of the successor to the Willamette and Foster families, with two codenames, Tualatin and Gallatin coming out of the Intel skunkworks. Willamette may also launch "this fall" at 1.4GHz. ®
