Intel today confirmed that Timna, Chipzilla's cheapo system on a chip, is dead.

Problems with the memory translator hub (MTH) which would have enabled the entry-level chip to use SDRAM memory rather than the expensive Rambus RIMMs for which it was originally designed, meant that by the time a workable solution had been found, the chip would have missed its market window.

The chip giant conceded that positioning Timna as an entry-level product, while Celerons were available at a lower price, would have been extremely difficult. On the power front, Timna would also have looked distinctly underpowered compared with Duron and Celerons around at the time of its Q1 2001 launch target. ®
