A small consortium of chip architects has outlined its thoughts on the future of x.86 architecture post the Pentium III. The architects, who have a site here, say there's life in the old dog yet. According to the site: "The x86 architecture has longer time life than one can imagine just few years ago. Performance of the x86 microprocessor can be still dramatically improved through using new architecture approaches. We will study post Intel's Pentium-III development of x86 architecture." On the site, the engineers describe a number of approaches which they say are possible with the x.86 architecture. They also post their thoughts about EPIC. And they're looking for work. ®
