Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

A hardware site is reporting that Cyrix will move to a PGA 370 pin socket design for its MX processors. According to JC's PC News'n'Links, the MX chip, which is an M2 with Cayenne's FPU enhancements, will knock the spots off Pentium II performance because it has an x87 unit at the level of the Pentium III. The report adds that MX chips will clock at 400MHz and move to 600MHz. The chips will sample in spring and be in production by July, while in August Cyrix will be available in September. Graham Jackson, European strategic manager at Cyrix-NatSemi Europe said: "We remain committed to integration and standalone business and whatever makes business sense." Said a representative: "Cyrix' position remains unchanged". ®
