Happy Cat leaks stash of Intel futures

Willamette, CuMine, Timna, Foster, Cascades: it's all there on our favourite Japanese site

Small Japanese corner shop Happy Cat has got its claws on Intel's future plans up until the year 2001, with details of its major introduction in Celeron, Coppermine, Cascades, PIII, Timna and Xeon technology. The document, which you can view here, also outlines the future sockets Intel will adopt over the next two years. According to the document, Willamette will use a 423 socket design. In the year 2000, we will see Cascades technology using Slot 2 and going from 600MHz to 800MHz, and later next year, Cascades technology with 1Mb of cache at speeds of up to 750MHz. Willamette looks like it will arrive around Q3 of next year, as anticipated, with huge cache, as exclusively reported here earlier this year, and using a 423 pin socket. According to the document on the site, Timna, Intel's system on a chip device, will come with 128K level two cache on the die at speeds of 533-700MHz and with a 370 pin socket. Foster will come at speeds greater than 1GHz in 2001 and use a 603 pin socket. There's so much information here that we will take time to digest it and return to the subjects later. We don't have our trusty Lernout&Huspie Japanese-English translation software here in the office, but will also set it to work later on in the day. ®
