Intel CTO plugs AMD motherboard
When Intel Chief Technology Officer Justin Rattner gave the opening speech at the Intel Developer Forum last week, it's likely he didn't mean to offer a flattering image of a motherboard filled with AMD chips.
His presentation included a slide featuring a four-processor server motherboard, and sharp eyes at the Inquirer observed that it looked like a design using Advanced Micro Devices technology.
Indeed, the motherboard is identical down to capacitors and PCI buses with one quad-Opteron board from Tyan.
Intel removed the presentation, which conspicuously labeled the rival product with the words "energy efficiency," from its Web site.
