Intel will show off models by IBM, Dell, Gateway 2000, Fujitsu, Mitsubishi and Siemens Nixdorf, according to sources.

The firm also plans to show off its Slot 2 server architecture to Press for the first time in Europe, and show simulations of its next-generation IA-64 architecture. Canned demonstrations of its Pandesic e-commerce joint-venture with SAP are also in the offing.
