Well, if it can make it x86-compatible, get somebody to write a workable operating system for it, teach the world a new way of parallel computing-style programming, and produce it in volume, Intel is going to have itself a general-purpose 'Teraflops' chip in a few years. The company ha...
When you think about virtualization, you probably think about VMware, or maybe Xen, and hopefully, even OpenVZ. With all the buzz surrounding this space, I thought it time to discuss three of the four different types of virtualization: emulation, paravirtualization, operating system-le...

Cutting AMD off at the knees in Q4 left Intel limping a bit too. Sequentially Intel did great - revenues up 11%, hitting the top of its projections, income up 15%, operating income up 8% - enough for CFO Andy Bryant to characterize Intel's performance as a 'strong ending to a difficult...
