Volgens The Register zal Intel op 7 februari tijdens de IEEE International Solid State Circuits conferentie een prototype van de Willamette processor demonstreren:
Chip giant Intel will demonstrate a 1GHz IA32 processor at a semiconductor conference early next year, it has emerged.
The company will use 2000 IEEE International Solid State Circuits conference, which starts on the 7th of February in San Franciso, to outline the features of the processor, which is likely to be the long-awaited (and late) Willamette chip.
[...] AMD will beat them to the gun. Sources close to the company say that it will be able to launch a 1GHz Athlon in January, if it so chooses
