Intel gaat er nu toch redelijk hard tegenaan: op het Intel Developers Forum in Palm Springs heeft het een 800MHz Coppermine modelletje gedemonstreerd:
The 800MHz chip, likely a Pentium III based on Intel's Coppermine design, was based on Intel's 0.18 micron manufacturing process, he said. Coppermine is the code-name for a Pentium III chip build on the 0.18 micron process.
Barrett said the Pentium III Coppermine chip will debut in October at speeds as high as 700MHz. A 667MHz version is also expected, Gelsinger said.
Gelsinger also said Rambus Direct RAM, a new high-bandwidth memory technology that will work with the 820 chip set, is on schedule for delivery this quarter. He said 14 products from five suppliers had already been validated.
