Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Getting our collective head around Intel's future plans when its number is legion (70,000) and ours is in single figures (8) is pretty tricky at the best of times. But luckily, we have as many eyes as Indra, and people who read The Reg keep them open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 366 days a year (2000 is a leap year). One of the latest Product Change Notifications (PCNs) to come out of Chipzilla Central makes very interesting reading indeed. Intel decided earlier this month that it will no longer fab C&T (Chips and Technologies) parts, with last orders being taken from the 1st of March, and very clean glasses happening on the 15th of March. It is to stop fabbing up the chips, which will be transferred to Asiliant Technologies, and Intel says that orders after the 15th of March will have to placed with Asiliant. It has licensed its C&T chips and Asiliant Technologies now have the rights to build, sell and service the listed parts in the document. Those are 28 of those parts, including the 825884, the 825240, the 825903-07, and so on. Intel paid a stack of dosh for C&T, but this graphics stuff never quite hit the sweet spot. ® See also Intel abandons chip: $½ billion lost at sea
