The Mips division of Silicon Graphics claimed today that the Merced processor was not likely to hit the streets until 2000 at the earliest.
Derek Meyer, director of the Mips group, said that his company had multiprocessing chips up its sleeve which would provide more functionality than the Intel or HP combo possibly could.
He said: "HP cannot afford to push its installed base onto Merced too soon." The reason for that was because it marked a sea change for HP users.
Last week Andy Grove, president and CEO of chip giant Intel, said that his company will sell both Merced and Pentium Pro families together "for the foreseeable future".
And a source at a first tier PC OEM said that the Deschutes architecture would last well into 1999.
