Intel makes no comment on Coppermine cache
Will we, won't we see 64K L1 cache in Coppermine?
Chip giant Intel has made a firm no comment following speculation that its Coppermine technology will include 64K of level one cache. Rumours circulated towards the end of last year that the original iteration of Katmai (Pentium III) processors would include double the cache but they proved unfounded. Now speculation is rife on the WWW that Coppermine will come with the 64K cache. But it seems we will either have to wait for a secret roadmap to fall into our hands on Coppermine technology. An Intel representative said: "Coppermine is the .18 micron process and it will ship in the second half of this year with speeds of 600MHz and above." She would not say whether or not this additional cache would come with it. ®
