Coppermine bug is a false alarm says Intel

Intel dismisses Coppermine motherboard tests

German computing magazine c't has according to Intel erroneously reported a possible flaw in the 733MHz Coppermine chip after testing the chip with the notoriously faulty i820 motherboard, which has since been withdrawn by Intel.

The magazine's review of the chip hinted at possible flaws in the compiler optimisation as well as the new level one/level two cache.

As Intel is keen to point out, however, this can all be dismissed as a false alarm after it has emerged that tests were carried out on the i820.
