Intel Set to Unveil New Pentiums
New details are emerging about Intel's forthcoming Pentiumchips based on the company's .18 micron manufacturing
process, dubbed Coppermine.
At the Intel launch event Monday, sources familiar with the
company's plans say it will unveil .18 micron Pentium III
chips ranging in speeds from 600 MHz at the low end to 733
MHz at the high end, faster than previously reported. While
speedier than predecessors manufactured using Intel's .25
micron technology, what will primarily distinguish the new
Pentiums is their onboard L2 cache, a first for the line.
On Monday, Intel will also unveil a mobile Pentium III chip.
A host of hardware vendors are expected to announce new
products next week--from servers to desktop PCs and mobile
devices-- based on the new Pentiums.
Intel next week also will take the wraps off its new 840
chipset, a workstation-specific product that features
greater internal bandwidth than the company's 820 chipset,
making it better suited for graphics processing
