IDT will produce S370 processor

But we're talking next year, say sources

IDT/Centaur will create a Socket 370 version of its WinChip platform. But it will likely be WinChip 5, a source close to the company said today. He said: "Our roadmap shows the WinChip 2, 3 and 4, and that's all we've said publicly. "We will produce a Socket 370 product but it won't be out this year. We don't have a licence for Socket 370 but by then we think we'll have one." The Super Seven socket will not die this year, as far as IDT is concerned, said the source. "We will move on to other sockets from the Super Seven, however," he said. ®
