Sources have revealed some details about future Intel chip technologies Willamette and Foster. The former, which is IA-32 technology with large caches and clock speeds is slated to appear in the second half of next year with clock speeds greater than 1GHz. We are reliably informed that Willamette will have a 200MHz front side bus (FSB) and employ dual channels for Rambus technology. Foster, on the other hand, appears on the Intel roadmap as arriving in late 2000 or early 2001. Foster is also IA-32 architecture but aimed at the high end workstation and server market. Our sources say that Foster is likely to land towards the end of next year, will use the 870 (Colusa) chipset and support memory of up to two gigabytes. Intel will not comment on unannounced codewords. ®
