Intel heeft het voor elkaar gekregen om een protopy z'n PIII processor op 1002MHz te laten kachelen:
Intel captured the speed record for desktop processors at its developer's forum by showing off a chip that ran at more than 1000 MHz.
Intel showed off a Pentium III desktop prototype that ran at 1002 MHz, a new land speed record for processors, according to Albert Yu, senior vice president of microprocessor products at Intel. The chip was running a computer running a multimedia application featuring underwater seascapes.
This was the first time the gigahertz (one billion cycles per second) frequency has been achieved on a standard microprocessor, Intel said.
IBM has run processors as fast as 1100 MHz, using an experimental 64-bit PowerPC chip.
