Intel serves up tastier chip

In a move that marks the evolution of the personal computer toward a more TV-like species, Intel Corp. has introduced its next generation Pentium processing chip that allows improved video, audio and graphics capabilities for PCs.

The new MMX (multimedia extension) chip provides new applications such as videoconferencing over standard telephone lines, improved software-based video and 3D graphics, and digital image editing and communications.

Computer manufacturers will be rolling out new MMX PCs, many bundled with software such as “Space Station Simulator” that shows off the new chip’s powers.

For PC owners seeking upgrades and software manufacturers with established catalogs, Intel said its MMX technology is fully compatible with previous Intel chip designs and with widely used operating systems a reference to Microsoft Corp.’s Windows operating system software and other software.
