Updated Reliable sources said yesterday that a future Intel IA-64 chip called Northwood would hit 3000MHz at its release. At the same time, it emerged that McKinley is likely to launch using P858 aluminium technology. The source who requested anonymity, works at Intel's R&D centre in Israel. He said that all generations of microprocessors following Deschutes are developed in pairs: Katmai-Tanner, Coppermine-Cascades and Willamette-Foster. Northwood, like Madison and Deerfield will be X60 compactions of the IA-64 but for the Willamette architecture. Northwood, further, is missing a Xeon counterpart and that suggests that Merced, McKinley and Madison are likely to replace IA-32 server chips. Deerfield is likely to be the first IA-64 chip aimed at the consumer market with a launch date in the 2003 timeframe. Meanwhile, the source said there is "practically no way" that Willamette and Foster will use copper technology. According to another source at Intel Germany, the Merced platform was originally laid out for .35 micron technology... ® See also Intel's copper to come sooner rather than later Hard facts emerge about Willamette
