Compaq's Alpha EV68 running at 833MHz will be used to upgrade The Big Q's AlphaServer ES40 in the very near future, according to old Reg chum Terry Shannon over at Shannon Knows Compaq.

And the 1GHz version of the chip, of which the company has more than enough, will appear in Compaq's AlphaServer GS line - aka Wildfire - sometime next May.

Indeed, the EV68 seems to have a future. According to SKC, IBM - which is fabbing the EV68 - has clocked the chip up to 1.1GHz, thanks to its copper interconnect technology. That's higher than the debut speed of the EV68's successor which was scheduled to come in at just over 1GHz. ®
