Intel plows ahead

With improved chips at the high end and cutting costs at the low end, Intel's making efforts to boost sagging margins.

Intel has released a Pentium II-style processor intended for high-end workstations and servers, dubbed Xeon, which can utilize four processors at once. But a bug is delaying the debut of the fastest "4-way" servers. The chip will allow the company to recover lost profit margins in the low end of the PC industry. In the meantime, reducing the cost of processors for portable PCs paves the way for more Pentium models around $1,000.
