Ik las dit berichtje dat een klein processor bedrijfje van plan is om een processor uit te brengen die hetzelfde werkt als Intel's Celeron.
Update: A small, struggling processor start-up is aiming to release the first clone of a Pentium II-class chip in the second half of the year, amid a ravaging price war.
Rise Technology, which makes a line of PC processors similar to the Pentium MMX, hopes to bring out a chip that will utilize the same packaging as Intel's low-cost Celeron chip, which comes from the Pentium II generation. The company is also expanding its workforce and seeking additional financing, according to Rise CEO David Lin.
If successful, Rise could become the first company with a product that's interchangeable with Celeron systems and, hence, the Pentium II architecture. National Semiconductor has been working on a Celeron-compatible chip but recently said it will sell its Cyrix processor division, putting the chip's fate in question.
