Well this is definitely interesting and potentially bad news for those P4 lovers
out there. Apparently Intel is going to cancel
the Tejas and Pentium 4 core completely and will be adopting a multicore Pentium
M for desktops...
Intel will today tear its Pentium 4 and Xeon roadmaps to shreds and announce
the cancellation of its 'Tejas' and 'Jayhawk' processors and their successors.
Both chips represent what was to have been the next generation of 90nm Pentium
4 and Xeon, respectively, and were scheduled to arrive in the Q2 2005 timeframe.
Chips derived from them include 'Cedarmill' on the desktop, and 'Potomac' and
'Tulsa' in the Xeon series. The future of these chips is now also in question.
has news about this too so I guess it's true!
The chips to be canceled include Intel's fourth-generation Pentium 4 chip,
code-named Tejas, which was to be sold next year. Also, a new Xeon processor
for low-end computer servers, code-named Jayhawk and believed to be based on
a similar architecture to Tejas, is also to be canceled, the person said.
