You guys might all be interested to know that the 21066/21066A is dead (long
live the most interesting CPU DEC has made for a while).

Due to lack of interest (evidently DEC found no high volume users for it)
the 21066 and all of its kind will be made no more. The fab line is being
torn out in favor of 1200 MHz or some such barn burners. A stock of about
20K remains.

There is NO follow on, unless you consider the ARM a logical successor.

Also, 21064, 21064A and the first generation 21164 are terminal, although
there is a 2 or so year supply of wafers in stock. Only the recently
announced 21164-P4, P5 and P6 (366Mhz-500MHz) will see future fab runs.

The TGA (aka 21030) is dead. Last orders are this month. No more fabs on
this, with about 20K parts left. No publicly available replacement.

The Dagger (aka 21130), the cut down TGA with a VGA core, is also dead.
