Intel has released a statement claiming that the 'packet of death' problem affecting its 82574L Ethernet controller is not a design problem but instead a problem confined to hardware manufactured by a single -- but as yet unnamed -- manufacturer.
Sending a specially crafted packet to an Intel 82574L Ethernet controller can cause the hardware to hang, and the 'packet of death' could be put to malicious use and crash systems even when protected by a firewall.
Low-power servers will grab 10 percent of the server market in the next three years, with Intel and ARM already positioning themselves for the coming battle.
In the short term, ARM chips will continue to have a low-power advantage over processors from x86 chipmakers like Intel and AMD, but eventually this advantage will disappear, according to AMD.
In preparation for taking on Intel in servers and storage ARM has developed a new networking technology for its chips that lets them reach higher core counts than before while being able to effectively pass information across the chip.
As the world moves on from the latest iPhone announcement, there was news about Intel, Klout, YouTube and Windows Server 2012.
The Intel Developer Forum will see Intel fight a major PR battle with arch-mobile-device-rival ARM, as well as try to fend off incursions into its datacentre territory from AMD and ARM.
The two companies have signed a memorandum of understanding promising to co-operate further on server, datacentre, storage and cloud computing products.
Initial adoption of microservers has been very industry specific, but Intel is expecting uptake from more enterprise customers within the next five years.
