"...Don MacDonald, director of marketing of the mobile platform group, also claimed Transmeta's solution was not entirely compatible."

"He said: "You should check whether the Transmeta chip is 100 per cent x86 compatible." He said information at "Tom's Register" led him to that conclusion."

"He confirmed that Intel would release a 1GHz mobile Pentium III at some period next year, but declined to give a date for the launch. ... There is a special low power IA group within his division of Intel, he said, that were able to produce chips running at a third of a watt."
