                  Intel plans even faster chips --
                  but who needs them?

                  (IDG) -- Intel over the next 18 months will
                  beef up the performance of its desktop and
                  notebook microprocessors with new and
                  enhanced products. But unless everyday
                  software applications used at work and at
                  home place increased demands on
                  processors, the chip giant may have trouble
                  finding customers willing to pay the higher
                  prices for its new offerings, an industry 
		  analyst said last week.
