Intel Brands Merced as Itanium, Geyserville and SpeedStar

By CBR Staff Writer

Intel Corp has revealed its brand name for the Merced IA-64 as Itanium. The name, said Intel, represents strengths and performance said Intel, emphasizing Itanium’s positioning as a high-end workstation and server chip. Further details about the chip, which has been delivered as engineering samples to Intel customers and is due onto the market in mid-2000, are expected to be revealed at today’s Microprocessor Forum in San Jose.

Intel has also renamed its Geyserville technology as SpeedStep. Originally expected to emerge later this year on the 600MHz version of the mobile Pentium III Coppermine, SpeedStep is now expected, along with that chip, in the first quarter of next year. SpeedStep optimizes performance for use with batteries, by cutting back the clock speed by 20% and power consumption by 50% when in battery mode. á
