UNCERTAINTY HANGS OVER INTEL 80860 PLANS

Intel Corp’s plans for the 80860 CPU family remain clouded in the wake of the phased defection by Stratus Computer Inc CI No 1,951): insiders say its development team moved across to the firm’s 80586 P5 effort, where Intel has now focused most of its resources; a high-end 80860 development, called N12, was cancelled, and a planned N15 part targeted at the graphics market now also appears to have been scrapped; some sources indicate that a high-end effort may be re-kindled after the P5 is out of the door, but sceptics insist that all future 80860 development has been killed.
