Ja, dat is wat Forbes meldt. Volgens hun heeft Intel het Rambus probleem opgelost en zouden er dit jaar nog i820 systemen moeten worden gelanceerd. De productie zou vrijdag al kunnen worden hervat. Hieronder een gedeelte uit het bericht.
Now the word is that Intel has fixed these problems and may announce the production schedule as early as this Friday. Intel and Rambus have not publicly disclosed what the problems are, but industry newsletter The Microprocessor Report says that there are memory-reliability issues on systems that have three memory slots.
"The problem was with some of the wiring specifications, and it seems they have fixed those issues," says a person familiar with Intel and Rambus. "The big question is can Intel convince the computer makers (OEMs) to re-launch systems in the fourth quarter."
Beyond the Camino 820 chipset, Intel is said to be facing no problems when it comes to Rambus-related memory. On Friday, Intel may also announce that the Carmel 840 multiprocessing chipset, which uses Rambus-technology, has no quality issues and will probably go into production in the first week of December 1999, dispelling any rumors that future chipsets would also be plagued with problems.
