Intel gets set to bring the 'platform' concept to desktops

INTEL WAS WISE enough to declare back in 2001 that megahurtz don't matter. The talk then was of smarter chips rather than simply cranked-up ones and the then nearly-boss of the chip-making corporation, a Mr Otellini, started banging on about clever multi-threading and cleverer multi-cores and, indeed, such things have come to pass.

And, we didn't read carefully back in 2001 ....

Only Graphic cards gain in performance and heatisnks gain in size since 2001; everyone loses including the giant Intel stock.
