THE STORY of Tukwila is as tangled as Tanglewood was but more tangles face Tukwila according to moles I met at Laguna Beach last week.
We reported here that senior Tukwila architect Mike Pachos, who worked on the Alpha EV7, is leaving Intel to spend more time with his MBA.
An early release of the Tukwila Itanic, as Nova said here, might possibly throw dust in IBM's Power 6 eyes. But that now seems highly unlikely. The rumble in the jumble is that Tukwila's speed might drop in the system interface section to 2.4GHz - three years ago the Tukwila talk was that this would be 4.5GHz.
