As we reported earlier today from a different source, HP didn't like the Alpha team's Tukwila design, so while it will still use the system interface unit that team designed, the new Tukwila duck will be designed in Fort Collins.
And they will also work on the Whitefield plan of action, with some of the Hudson team taking time out to work on this future processor as well.
But the majority of the Hudson staff will be working on Intel's Project Z, our sources disclosed. Someone at Intel might know what Project Z is supposed to be, but when the team was told about it yesterday they'd never heard about it.
The HP Fort Collins team, it has emerged, had tried to kill the Alpha Tukwila as long ago as two years, and visited Massachusetts armed with numbers showing the design ran too hot and wouldn't get anywhere near the performance it wanted.
Still, it appears to have taken two years for the HP designers to get their way. Unfortunately, the HP designers might not have realised soon enough that soon enough they'd be working for the Intel Corporation. µ
