Graig van Sharky Extreme heeft z'n Weekly CPU Prices column geupdate met info over de release van de Athlon-700 en de introductie van Intel's PIII Coppermine processor:
The already confusing CPU picture will get muddier over the next six weeks as AMD's Athlon 700MHz CPU debuts on October 4th, while Intel is preparing a literal onslaught of new chips based around their Coppermine architecture.
The push begins in earnest next week when the Katmai based .25 micron Pentium III CPUs that are designed to run using the new 133MHz front side bus speed of the i820 core logic chipset arrive and go on sale with i820 mainboards. Offered in two versions, the P3-533B and the P3-600B, the two new CPUs are already being offered for sale from select vendors a week early.
After September ends it's all Coppermine for Intel, with a launch of at least five new CPUs occurring by the last week of October.
