Several vendors will demonstrate Pentium III Xeon-based eight-way servers at PC Expo in New York later this month – but they won’t be able to ship them in July, as originally planned.
Intel’s Profusion chip set has been delayed again – indefinitely – pending the results of additional “validation tests,” company officials said.
Sources at several computer manufacturers told PC Week they don’t expect to be able to ship the eight-way servers until September at the earliest.
The Profusion technology was developed by Corollary Inc., which Intel bought in 1997. The chip set was originally due last year but has been beset by delays.
