Intel has scrapped plans for two upcoming products to circumvent the growing
problem of how much heat its chips generate. Intel will combine two processors
onto a single chip, allowing for lower power usage as well as doubling
performance. The chips being canceled include Tejas and Jayhawk. Instead, Intel will
sell so-called “dual-core” processors for desktop and notebook computers next
year, ahead of schedule. Intel plans to introduce dual-core chips for desktop
computers in 2005 and plans to start shipments of dual-core chips for notebook
computers the same year. While heat generation was a factor in Intel’s decision,
another impetus was likely Intel’s success in developing advanced manufacturing
techniques that can accommodate dual-core chips.
