Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Thanks to AMD Zone for pointing us to the famous Akihabara Pricewatch pages, which have extensive coverage of the Wintel sponsored WinHEC 2000 show in New Orleans. Time to roll out our Lernhowtospell Japanese to English translator then... As well as pictures of the AMD Thunderbird and Spitefires, and Socket A of course, the page says that a CPU codenamed Corvette appears on the roadmap. It also demoed Thunderbird and Spitfire at WinHEC, the page says. AMD showed its 760 chipset running with DDR synchronous memory. Corvette, the page says, is a new codename for Mustang, AMD's mobile Athlon but the Akihabara page seems to suggest that this particular type of mobile Athlon may be aimed at the high end of the market. AMD will have a 1.5GHz processor in volume by January of next year, to compete with Intel's Willamette, the page says. ®
