Sources very close to Compaq told The Register yesterday that her company has struck a deal with IBM Micro to make its Alpha microprocessors. That is no surprise. IBM Micro has very expensive fabs with super-duper process technology and our source told us that Big Blue is still a bit leery about Intel. AMD will also probably make Alphas once it has ramped up its Dresden fab a bit. Eckhard Pfeiffer, CEO of Compaq, brokered the deal, according to our information. Pfeiffer was in London yesterday, pre-announcing an acquisition (see earlier story). Does Mr Pfeiffer always come to the Landmark Hotel when he's buying companies? We think we should be told. ®
