Intel Opens Its Front-Side Bus

Post by boat » Tue Apr 24, 2007 8:14 am

courtesy slashdot...:

"The Inquirer is reporting that Intel has opened up its FSB. Intel did this during IDF 07. What this means is that you can plug non-Intel things into the Intel CPU socket. The article says 'This shows that Intel is willing to take AMD seriously as a competitive threat, and is prepared to act upon it. In addition to this breaking one of the most sacred taboos at Intel, it also hints that engineering now has the upper hand over bureaucracy.'"

could prove interesting... :look3: :P
