Intel re-draws map, re-jigs Merced roadmap

Power of the Vulture Part II

Several weeks ago, we noticed that Intel thought Europe spanned the entire distance between Galway and Vladivostok on its Channel pages. (See Intel brokers Russian entry into Europe). Now it has realised the error of its ways and has moved the word Europe from the centre of the steppes and close to the gulag, back to where most people think the continent lies. However, Intel does not yet appear to have typed in the word Asia where it belongs, thus brutally disenfranchising everyone over there in Korea in favour of Japan. And in further brutal evidence that Vulture Central gets the story right, we notice from the roadmaps that Intel runs on its channel pages, that Merced clock speeds seem to have dropped from near 1GHz to a more realistic 550MHz. These figures, of course, come nowhere near the 800MHz+ that everyone was expecting from Chipzilla. ®
