The Register: Intel notebook demos now '100% Transmeta compatible'Jun 20, 2000, 11:13 (2 Talkback[s])

"Intel used its mobile chip launch this week to allay fears of incompatibilities between Transmeta presentations and its own demonstrations of mobile Notebook chips."
"Previously, spin engineers had encountered technical difficulties in the demanding science of reproducing Transmeta publicity point-by-point. But The Register was on hand at the launch of five new mobile chips in San Francisco, and we can confirm that the Intel has largely achieved compatibility with the Transmeta instruction set."
"This tricky feat involves synchronising both PowerPoint slides and real-time demonstrations of CPU voltage. It requires a clean room environment in which the slightest trace of FUD can lay waste to the entire presentation."
