Samsung Semiconductor Inc says it will provide more details about its own plans for the Alpha RISC microprocessor once Digital Equipment Corp gets its new 0.35 micron 21264 part out of the door this week. Samsung believes DEC’s Alpha agreement with Intel Corp – plus what looks like Mitsubishi Electric Corp’s de facto syanora from the business – will increase its opportunities. It’s got its own Alpha logic under development for later this year too. Samsung, which in addition to the hot-rodded 0.25 21264 EV67 parts it will now deliver this year, says at 533MHz and 600MHz, 21264 will offer double the performance of the existing 21164. Samsung partners say they expect to get samples this week. Samsung, which produced only 4,000 Alphas last year, not enough to meet demand, appears to have ramped its delivery expectation significantly in the last few weeks, saying it’ll now deliver at least 100,000 parts in 1998. Of course the 700MHz work will also be available to DEC, it says.
