UK Journalists are cynical in the extreme. Be clear and firm about your arguments -- from Intel's internal publication Working with the European Press Intel is now denying that it will demo a 1GHz .18 micron chip by year end. Or should that first par read: Intel is not denying that it will demo a 1GHz .18 micron chip by year end? If it is denying it, that means that it will have to redraw its own slides. (Slides and story: Intel's plans for 1GHz microprocessors) The denial came in the shape of a comment to TechWeb by a US Intel spin paramedic, after the US online service read our story and saw our slides on the Wibbly Wobbly Web. But shortly after we filed our story this morning, we had a call from a source close to Intel's plans which suggests it will demo such a part. And it could be as early as next week, at the Intel Developer Forum in roadrunner land, Palm Springs. Only the paramedics survive... Pierre Mirjolet, an Intel EMEA architecture marketing manager, did tell around a dozen UK hacks, including some from chippy titles Electronics Weekly and Electronics Times that it would demo a 1GHz processor this year. Meanwhile, a source close to Intel US, tells The Register that Intel used Kryotech technology to achieve clock speeds of 700MHz at CeBIT in Germany, last year. ® RegOid 1865 "...you can have no idea what a delightful thing a Lobster Quadrille is!"
