Rise Technology heeft vandaag bevestigd dat het dit jaar een socket370 processor zal releasen. The Register heeft het nieuws van de CeBIT:
He [mannetje van Rise] said: "You will see Socket 370 versions of our processor this year." He said that the move was related more to marketing its products than giving Rise a technical edge.
Speculation was mounting at CeBIT that SGS, now known as STMicroelectronics, is likely to be the Rise fab partner. If so, that will give the company a huge boost.
Rise was showing its next generation processor, the mp6II on its stand. That will be released in Q2. According to the company, the first iteration of the processor will be at least 300MHz and come with 256K level two cache and an external cache for level three cache.
