NatSemi-Cyrix said that it was now unlikely that it would produce a Slot One based solution. That is despite the fact that it has a solution in its labs and that the distribution channel has pressured it to produce Slot One because of demand from dealers. The change in heart, according to a senior source at the Cyrix group at NatSemi Europe, was because of changes in the market. He said that while the company had the patents and the technology to make a Slot One unit for some time, the roadmap for the foreseeable future would continue along the socket seven route. But the decision is more likely to be because of Intel's decision to move its low-end processors to a 370-pin socket process. It has said that OEMs will be delivering both desktops and notebooks using the socket by the end of this year. IBM Microelectronics did have a Slot One processor on its roadmap for early next year but that prospect ended with the deal it struck with NatSemi last week. Dealers and distributors have pushed for an alternative to Intel's Slot One solution during most of this year. ® Click here for more stories
