The essential guide to IT transformation

Young Kyle Bennett at Hard OCP has got his mitts on some internal Intel roadmaps for the year 2000. And very interesting reading they make too. Some of the information, in the form of an Asia Pacific presentation, we knew about already, in particular the 866MHz Pentium III being released at the end of Q1, and which we've already written about. But Intel is also going to introduce an 850MHz part in the same time frame, while a 1GHz IA-32 processor is going to peep into the world. We also knew that Intel planned to kill Slot 1 as soon as it could, but one of the slides seems to suggest that Intel will migrate 80 per cent of its Pentium III production to Coppermine by the end of Q1 next year. There are also some hilarious bits and pieces. Solano, which we first revealed back in early October, is now called Solano 2, the BX chipset will last much longer than anyone ever thought. And, this is really the cream of the jest, Intel will introduce Camino 2 in Q2 2000 as part of its business roadmap. We thought Caminogate was up to rev IV or V already? ®
