Intel's Potomac team gets dissolved

Re-organisation goes ahead
Fri May 07 2004, 09:02
RELIABLE SOURCES FROM Intel Taiwan have given the INQUIRER further details of a re-organisation on the microprocessor front, which started with the canning of Tejas, exclusively revealed here yesterday.

The sources say that not only Tejas and Jayhawk are dead wood, but its Tulsa project which was considerably advanced, has gone too, and the reasons for that remain unclear.

More worryingly, the Potomac chip team, which is the other half of Intel's Oregonian Xeon group, has had the axe, and people working for those will end up in the DPG (desktop) wings.

DPG itself is to take over such tasks as Nocona, which is widely regarded as being Prescott in just a shiny new packaging with added blue crystals. The Xeon DP project is just a bit of bodging of the Prescott.

As we reported yesterday, the Tejas team has already been assigned to other duties.
