Bij Firingsquad vonden ze blijkbaar dat ze ook maar eens een Intel roadmap op het net moesten gooien. In feite wordt er weer hetzelfde verhaaltje verteld als in de roadmaps van THG en Sharky Extreme. Dit stukje over Coppermine vs K7 lijkt me wel interessant:
Those keeping up with the news may have noticed that Intel has already begun shipping .18um CPUs, primarily in the form of mobile P2 and Celeron processors. A lot of people believe that this is high-volume "test run" to warm the fab plants up for the impending arrival of the AMD K7. While experience tells us that coincidence is usually the rule rather than the exception, we have no doubt that Intel has the capability to push out Coppermine Pentium IIIs at 600Mhz and up, right here and now, and definitely by the end of June.
While Intel has no reason to immediately fear AMD's K7 impact, they're not blind to the long-term implications. The fact is, their only option at this point is to take on AMD in raw MHz - put out faster rated chips for cheaper. This can be an annoyance for Intel, and heck it may hurt their quarterly earnings reports, but it's a practice they've perfected against AMD, a company that is depending on K7 to achieve profitability.
