PPC vs x86, Intel vs AMD, believe me folks I´d like to see PPC rule the market, but this looks like x86 is here to stay. I think it´s interesting to see what will be tomorrow, even if it has little to do with Amiga today.
Yes, I know that GHz isn´t everything, but that´s a *lot* of GHz to make up for with superior (?) architecture...
From Heise Online:
"In the early morning, shortly after 8 AM local time, [Intel] presented a prototype of a 0.13µm Pentium-4 (Northwood), which - shortly - ran at 3.5 GHz.
On average, the IDF record breaking CPUs reach the market after roughly a year. The 2 GHz type that started production yesterday was also presented as a prototype on last year´s IDF. So we can expect the 3.5 GHz Pentium 4 in late summer 2002. In general, so Otellini, the architecture can be scaled up to 10 GHz."
