Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

As we revealed some weeks ago, after we published an internal Intel memo to its distributors and channels, there is a price adjustment to its Pentium III Coppermine processors on the 27th of February next. We have already published details of AMD's price adjustments on that date. According to our information, Intel will play the catch-up game with suddenly virile AMD by introducing 850MHz and 866MHz of Coppermines on the 27th. How many of these processors will be available then is a different matter. Unfortunately for Intel, we also understand that AMD can, if it wishes to, jump over the 866MHz barrier by releasing its 900MHz Athlon any time it wants. So the game will continue for at least the next three months or so. Meanwhile, our colleagues at German magazine PC Professional have posted information that shows a 733MHz Celeron Intel is readying is being positioned directly against AMD Athlons. But, they report, for the first time the K7 has appeared in the Intel roadmap. Cough. Meanwhile, at the beginning of last week, Intel confirmed that it had had to trash three mobos, as we revealed two weeks back. ® See also AMD to axe Athlon prices Feb 28 Three Intel mobos scrapped because of chipset problems Intel confirms huge Pentium III shortage Intel Developer Forum coverage Q1 2000
