Intel Roadmap News 10/2000 - Part Two, Intel's Future Mobile and Server/Workstation Products
Intel's recent roadmap for notebook products looks quite jolly. Already in the beginning of next year we will see the first Giga Hertz processor for mobile platforms and mobile Pentium III processors at up to 1.26 GHz will arrive soon afterwards as well. The workstation and server roadmap is not quite as interesting, except for the fact that Intel is counting a lot on 'Third Party' chipset makers to provide non-RDRAM platforms for those systems.

Tom's Blurb - MTH - The Story Isn't Over Yet ...
For most of Intel's customers that sold products with MTH the fun is only starting. Still most people are badly informed; still it's a fact that every owner of an MTH-chip is entitled to a replacement of refund. We've got some thoughts about why Intel is not replacing with Solano-platforms once it's out and if Intel isn't a commendable company for its honest policy. We also have some info for i840-owners with SDRAM.
