Thresh's FiringSquad heeft een preview van Intel's nieuwe Pentium III die we in maart kunnen verwachten en die zich zal moeten gaan meten met de AMD K7.
Benchmarks? Well, not exactly. We couldn't take down any benchmarks yet, but we were able to snag some system info. The strangest thing is the L1 Cache field - we've heard reports that Katmai may include 64KB of L1 - not too unlikely due to the fairly modular design of Intel's processors. However, Winbench 99 reports 32, which is more in line with what to expect. Whether this is only for the initial launch (.25 um, 450/500Mhz) has yet to be seen, but with rising competition from AMD, we would have expected that Intel would push for more L1. The CPU is listed as model 7, stepping 2.
