Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The Carmel chipset, now known to aficionados (read geeks) as the i840, was supposed to be the Intel Rambus chipset that put the i820 in the shade. Alas, that was not to be, and soon enough it was discovered that there were minor errata (not bugs) that caused fluttering both in customer dovecots and in the board division of Intel as it realised the chipset division had, once more, not quite got it right. Now Intel has taken steps to address these problems and has just issued one of its famous product change notifications to alert the world+dog that it has fixed some of the latest problems in the i840. The document, PCN #964, introduces the MCH (memory controller hub) B2-stepping, which fixes a total of 15 errata in the i840. Customers must be ready to receive post conversion material (read: fixes) from August the 25th next. You can find the PDF in question here. ® See Also Leak!
