Intel will phase out its Verified by Intel initiative, designed to ensure standardization and interchangeability of notebook parts across suppliers, by the middle of 2008, the company said Oct. 11.

The notebook market has matured to the point that the VBI program is no longer necessary for system builders, said Steve Dallman, manager of worldwide reseller channel organizations at Intel.

"The market is mature enough that we dont have to test peripherals to make sure that they work with notebooks. That can really be left up to the ODMs at this point," Dallman said.
