That's odd ... I remember the i960 being touted

I am not an Intel enthusiast. Last time I saw one, it was on a MYLEX
3-channel SCSI RAID board. Could I be confusing this with something else?
I'm sure that Intel would have said this. If their fastest
processor was a 8080 they would have said the same thing.
It is all just marketing.
