Computer Business Review
Digital Equipment Corp's Alpha RISC second source Mitsubishi Electric Corp is said to be doing a 200MHz 21066 as its first Alpha chip, a frequency DEC has yet to announce. According to the Microprocessor Report, it would deliver a SPECint of 85 and a SPECfp of 130, 20% better than the 166MHz Alpha although still less on the integer side than a 90MHz Pentium. The Japanese firm will use a 0.5-micron process and a die 26% smaller than DEC's. Power dissipation will remain around 20W. The chip will start sampling this quarter but will not reach volume production until the third quarter next year.
