IBM Microlectronics has named its forthcoming Java chip (see previous story) after a common or garden plant, and thrown doubt over whether it will continue to invest in the X86 manufacturing business.
Daisy stands for 'dynamically architected instruction set from Yorktown' but that could mean problems for the X86 designers in IBM's unit in Austin, Texas, who have, so far, supported the M2 design to be released next week by Cyrix.
Under the terms of the agreement between Cyrix and IBM, the former company will use the latter's fabrication plants to generate X86 chips, which perform at least as fast as Intel processors using the same technology.
