SANS - Survey on application security programs

Intel Developer Forum Intel said today that there are two arithmetical logical units (ALUs) within its up-and-coming microprocessor codenamed Willamette that each run at 3GHz. The rest of the microprocessor runs at 1.5GHz, Intel representatives said. Yesterday, Intel demonstrated a Willamette processor which was apparently air cooled and which clocked over 1500MHz. We were not allowed to lift up the presentation's skirt and exactly see what was going on. At the time, Dr Albert Yu, senior VP in charge of desktop architecture, said that one ALU had been specially optimised to run faster than the rest of the microprocessor. But Intel was chary of saying that Willamette will run at 3GHz, and, in fact, kept describing the microprocessor as 1GHz/500. The reason for this, according to representatives, was because end users and consumers would be confused by describing the chip as 1.5GHz. Meanwhile, Daniel Wolff, editor of Chip, managed to find two shots of the Willamette die. You can find these pictures here. ®
