As revealed here earlier this year, Intel has confirmed it is to introduce Xeon processors next year which will run at more than 700MHz.
Albert Yu, senior vice president of microprocessor products, demonstrated a chip running at 700MHz at Cebit this year, and said it would be part of the Xeon platform.
Intel will manufacture the chips using its up-and-coming .18 micron process technology, which will also allow it to increase speeds of PIIs to more than 600MHz, and mobile PIIs to 350MHz. Subsequent higher clock rates will follow during the year.
Towards the end of this month, Intel will also make further price cuts to its Celeron and PII range of chips, with the cost of the entry level processors falling dramatically.
Intel will also move to integrate second level cache as an integrated part of its Pentium II platform. This technology, codenamed Dixon, will come as part of its move to the .18 micron technology, which will mean faster speeds as well as lower heat consumption and cheaper microprocessors.
And, yep, it'll run Android rather than RiscOS
