ZDNet heeft een artikeltje gepost over de release date van de Intel Coppermine, waarvan 4 verschillende versies beschikbaar zullen komen:
So Intel, per the request of its OEMs, will pull together four different individual processor launches based on the Coppermine Pentium III design into a single launch day in late October or early November.
On the desktop, Coppermine will produce 600MHz and faster Pentium III chips. Sources have tossed around 667MHz and 700MHz as possible speeds. It will also allow for new packaging that returns to a socket for small form factor PCs. This packaging, called "flip chip," will debut at about 500MHz.
Mobile Pentium IIIs using the Coppermine design will start at speeds as high as 500MHz. Sources said Intel will offer 400MHz and 450MHz mobile Pentium III chips as well. A 600MHz mobile Pentium III will be out in first quarter of 2000, sources said.
