IDT's Winchips not dead

Just breathing in a stentorian way

The Japanese IDT Web site is displaying details of roadmap for x.86 chips which show it extending well into the 21st century. And according to Daiki at his Japanese Web site, this means 400MHz and 450MHz parts by the end of the year. IDT has kept a low profile since rumours started flying early this month that it was getting out of the x.86 market. We have had no official word from IDT about its WinChips for quite some time, so can't say if this is a flyer or not. For the first time, we used Jim Breen's Japanese translation page in an attempt to find out more details. That's an interesting process but does help a little in understanding the words that go with the pictures. Seems to be quite a lot of stuff on Daiki's page about Intel flying into a rage... ®
