PC One heeft het volk bij IDT zitten interviewen over hun Winchip, niet bepaald een winnend chippie. Hier wat van de saus:
Why are clock speeds on the Winchip2 so low compared to your competitors? When will higher clock speeds appear?
IDT's initial WinChip processors, while below the speed standards of the tier 1 OEMs, have sold very well in emerging markets, and this has provided us an excellent springboard to move to the next level. WinChip speeds will increase incrementally with the April introduction of the WinChip 2 (version A which fixes the 3dnow! erratum) and WinChip 3. Additionally, the WinChip 4 will take us to 500MHz this time next year. That will be a competitive product for the low-end. And when we move to 0.18um, we will get a significant boost in speed for products after WinChip 4.
