SAN FRANCISCO May 21 Intel Corp (INTC.O) is on
track to ship its next generation of computer processors,
code-named Nehalem, in the second half of this year, Chief
Executive Paul Otellini said on Wednesday.
"Nehalem ... is still scheduled to launch in the second
half of the year," Otellini told the company's annual meeting
He also confirmed plans to quickly increase output of
computer processors made with the latest technology, which can
etch circuits 45 nanometers wide, 30 percent smaller than
previous chips using a 65-nanometer process.
"On 45 nanometers, Intel is leading the industry by a long
stretch," Otellini said. "We are on track to cross over in (the
third quarter) of this year, so more than half our processors
will be made on 45 nanometers."
