Intel/HP go to work on McKinley
Tom Foremski Intel and Hewlett-Packard (HP) are working on the successor to their forthcoming 64-bit Merced processor, codenamed McKinley, which will be targeted at mainframe-class computer systems. Sources close to HP report that the company is taking on a stronger design role in developing McKinley because of its experience in developing enterprise level computer systems. McKinley will be an extension of the parallel processing architecture found in Merced with enhancements suited for large scale systems. The 1GHz chip, expected in 2001, will offer at least twice the performance of the first Merced chip.
