Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Visitors to the AOpen booth at World PC Expo 2000, which started yesterday in Tokyo, can check out one of the world's best two mobos for Intel's upcoming flagchip Pentium 4.

The AX4T motherboard uses the 850 Tehama chipset, currently being revamped due to an erratumnotbug causing glitches with certain PCI graphics cards. (Story: P4 launch now set for end of November).

As the revised version of Tehama isn't with us yet (manufacturing was scheduled to start this week), the AX4T board on show in Tokyo is fitted with the pre-revision chipset. This doesn't matter too much as there isn't actually a Pentium 4 on the board, but visitors are assured that it would work, were one to be fitted, honest.

Details including the price of the motherboard and the date that it will go on sale remain a mystery.

No other mobo makers are exhibiting Pentium 4 motherboards in public at the World PC Expo event, but some companies are reputedly running demos of their 1.5GHz Pentium 4 products in behind-the-scenes, private showrooms reserved for corporate bigwigs only. Almost all of these will be using Intel's own TTM (Time To Market) Garibaldi 850 mobo.

Aopen's flaunting of its Pentium 4 mobo ahead of its competitors is obviously an attempt to show off its product development expertise, but it also says 'We're best pals with Intel' as well. ®
