As many Intel fans know that Intel is set to release their Desktop
Control Center Software, which will measure system settings such
as FSB (Front Side Bus), voltage settings, temperatures as well
as other crucial settings. As of right now Intel is using IAM
(Intel Active Monitor) Technology on their motherboards, which
essentially does the same things as Intel’s future release
of its Desktop Control Center. The only difference between IAM
and Desktop Control Center is the fact that Desktop Control Center
does not function inside the BIOS (Binary Input Output System).
Some users are hesitant to go into the BIOS and that is the reason
Intel claims that it’s Desktop Control Center Software will
make it easier for users to monitor their system’s critical
settings in a GUI (Graphical User Interface) mode. Intel also
claims that it is preventing users from hassles that they have
to go through just to check some minor settings.
Intel’s new software not only lets users monitor
their system’s settings but also give their systems’
a little boost while gaming. Intel informs that the software can
utilize two modes, which are “Quite Operation” and “Gaming
Mode.” This does not mean that Intel is in favor of overclocking.
Intel’s future software is also packed with
stress testing features. According to Intel it will allow users
to test their system’s stability.
Above is all the basic information that we feel our
readers need to know about Intel’s future software that is
replacing its IAM Technology.
After talking to Intel’s Spokesperson George
Alfs we were able to gather quite a lot of information regarding
According to Intel, this software will allow users
to make setting changes in windows environment instead of the console
mode in the BIOS. Intel is due to release their Desktop Control
Center Software with D875PBZ and D865PERL motherboard models. These
motherboards are based on Intel’s new chipsets with 800Mhz
FSB. Intel also said that it is having a hard time providing us
with the exact development time because of the fact that it’s
IAM Technology already contains those features. Intel is planning
to release their Desktop Control Center Software in 4th quarter
of this year (2003).
Apparently Intel’s Desktop Control Center Software
will not be for sale. It will be provided to system integrators
and users who have purchased Intel’s motherboards. As stated
earlier, the software will first be included with Intel’s
D875PBZ and D865PERL motherboard models.
Intel also said that their future software would only
be for Intel motherboards since third party motherboard manufacturers
have their own monitoring utilities.
Intel said that this software is merely a monitoring
utility that is not intended for overclocking purposes. As a matter
of fact, Intel said that it does not advocate overclocking in any
shape, way or form.
