Maximizing your infrastructure through virtualization

The Dell Corporation, in an attempt to show even-handedness in the processor market, is expected this week to give Intel a hard time for problems it caused the company when a shortfall of Coppermines dented its quarterly results. That follows an attack made by Dell's chairman Michael Dell, on AMD ten days ago, when he told UK journalists that the platform was currently too fragile. According to sources at the Intel Developer Forum here in Palm Springs, Michael Dell is shortly to take the opportunity of an interview with a high profile American weekly to criticise the chip giant for its performance over the last few months. Meanwhile, it has been confirmed that AMD is to take the opportunity of the Intel Developer Forum to attack it on clock speeds. It has booked a suite at a hotel close to the convention centre Intel is using, and will attempt to entice journalists from around the world away from the conference to see a further demonstration of its GHz+ Athlon processor. ®
