Intel's Glen Echo canned?

Lancewood far from breathing its last

Sources close to Intel's plans said over the weekend that its ambitious Glen Echo project, which was supposed to sample towards the end of last month and was scheduled to ship in July, has been cancelled. That will give Lancewood, its trusty workaday server muvvaboard, a further lease of life and two further revs which will last for a clear nine months more, the same sources said. Glen Echo, which was provisionally named the S440GE2, was to have used Ultra160, fast CuMine technology, have a 100MHz spin and will use either a Hudson (5U) or Byrd (2U) chassis, as we exclusively revealed in March. The Glen Echo board was to have made use of two Intel chassis designs, the Hudson and the Byrd, but now it is apparently dead (and we are unlikely to get confirmation from Intel on its status*), Lancewood will have to bridge the gap by lasting nine extra months and supporting the chassis changes. The Lancewood revs will have the suffixes GXH (Hudson) and GXG (1GHz) support. This latest news is yet another blow for Intel's chipset division, beleaguered as it is by all sorts of factors including getting Willamette to market, coping with i820 continuining difficulties, getting PC-133 support to market and last, but not leastly, introducing the Merced processor and support for the same. Lancewood was intended for Coppermine-based servers up to 850MHz, and Intel, according to insiders, is rushing to increase capacity during this month. We will attempt to discover how this may affect other up-and-coming plans from Intel, over the coming days.

  • Intel never commences on unannounced products, so how can it comment on an unannounced product it has canned before it was announced?
