Short Take: Xeon chip to get a boost

The Xeon Pentium III class of server processors will get considerable power boosts in 2000, said John Miner, vice president and general manager of the networking computing group at the Intel Developers Forum. By the middle of 2000, Xeon will run at more than 700 MHz, he said. In addition, Intel will begin to "integrate" secondary cache memories ranging in size from 1MB to 2MB onto the chip. Cache memory serves as a data reservoir for processors. Integrating cache into the chip improves performance and reduces heat.
