Compaq's hopes for the Alpha processor may have suffered a set-back after one of its key designers quit the company.
Dan Dobberphul, one of the early Alpha architects, left Compaq last week to join an unnamed start-up company.
Dobberphul was the director of the Palo Alto Design Center, where the next generation Alpha processor, EV-7, is being developed. He helped Digital Equipment, which has since been bought by Compaq, set up the centre.
