Next generation Intel chipsets have bugs

Won't stop 'em launching the little buggers, though

Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

May the Lord have mercy, as my dear old mum used to say.

No sooner has Intel had to dip into Andy Grove's retirement nest egg to fund the Caminogate mobo fiasco, than does Chipzilla prepare to launch another bunch of dodgy chipsets.

The i815 and i815E chipsets are "on schedule" for launch this month (June). However, there will be a "slight schedule adjustment" delaying availability by approximately two weeks while "known issues" are addressed.

And wouldn't you just know it? The 815 twins will support both PC100 and PC133 SDRAM, but will never, ever, talk to Rambus memory. Naturally, Intel is committed to RDRAM as the way forward, but "wants to offer OEMs the opportunity to take advantage of legacy SDRAM for cost sensitive designs."

So committed to RDRAM is Intel that it states that while it will "drive forward RDRAM memory solutions," it will "continue to evaluate" the memory industry to "take advantage of current and future technology."

Now that's what we call real commitment. ®
