Intel cancels 800MHz Xeon

Intel has canceled plans for high-end versions of its 800-MHz Xeon processor, saying computer makers simply don’t want it.

Intel released 700MHz Xeon chips with 1MB and 2MB of high-speed built-in cache in May, and plans to launch the 64-bit Itanium chip in the next few months at speeds of 800 MHz, with Level 3 cache of 2MB and 4MB. Foster, a new update to the existing 32-bit chip line and successor to Xeon, will debut in the first quarter of 2001 at speeds greater than 1GHz, company officials said.
