Intel stopped working on Tejas - Pentium M 64 bit instead?

Posted on Thursday, May 06 2004 @ 19:52:45 CEST by

Rumours from people close to Intel engineers suggest that Intel might have dropped the work on the successor of the Prescott, the Tejas processor.
These sources tell the INQUIRER, and as yet this is unconfirmed, that the project has been shelved before tape out, and layout resources are no longer working on it. The tape out was supposed to have happened round about now.
There is some speculation that Intel is trying to take the Pentium M to the next level, and move it as fast as possible into production. According to the sources Intel engineers are already designing a 64 bit P6/Pentium M core, perhaps dropping the legacy stuff and including 32 bit compatability.
Which would strongly suggest, as we’ve reported before, that Intel might well bring its Conroe and its Merom projects closer to reality than first anticipated.
