Intel rushes to fix Alviso bugTue, Dec 28, 2004 - 4:43 AM
“ THERE IS A MINOR, and I mean mino,r bug in Alviso that won’t be fixed before launch. The DDR subsystem doesn’t like to power down the way it should, so if you look at the initial numbers, DRR2 will end up looking much better than it really is.
I say this is a minor problem because you would pretty much have to me a moron to buy an Alviso machine with DDR anyway. The 15 or so minutes of battery life when you use DDR2 is well worth the price premium, especially considering it is probably not going to be in cheap laptops to begin with.”
