HP to ship first copper chip next year

Hewlett-Packard will deliver its first chip to incorporate copper technology in the first half of next year, company officials said.

HP’s next-generation PA-RISC 8700 chip will be built on a 0.18-micron process and will debut at a speed faster than 800 MHz.

In addition, the chip’s unusually large 2.25MB of cache memory will allow it to complete 3.2 billion calculations per second, HP said.
