Ace's Hardware heeft een samenvatting gepost van een Intel Roadmap artikel van Hardware.fr (een of andere franse winkel, willen wij helemaal niet verstaan ). De Willamette staat volgens dit verhaaltje nog steeds gepland voor het vierde kwartaal van volgend jaar. Verder verwachten ze de PIII-800 in maart:
The original Slot 1 platform is due to expire by next April (2000) The Pentium III is expected to be available at 800 MHz in March PIII/866 due at the end of Q2 2000 and PIII/933 due at the end of Q3 2000 We should see the P7 (Willamette) in the early part of Q4 2000, along with a new host platform (not GTL+) The PIII/750 is due out in January for $745. The PIII/800 and 866 will initially sell for $775 The 533, 566, and 600 MHz Celerons will sell for $170 at the time of their release [break] Update: Ace's Hardware heeft nog meer info uit dat Hardware.fr artikel: [/break] Basically, the information was taken from Intel's November roadmap. According to this, 25% of the Pentium IIIs will be shipping as FC-PGA/socketed versions in January, 50% in February, and 75% in March. In January, the PIIIs will also be available in 100 MHz or 133 MHz versions, and it's interesting to note that the BX chipset is apparently on the roadmap until the end of 2000. BX is supposed to be phased out by i820. "i820 2," on the other hand, is due to appear around Fall 2000, though I don't have any details on the feature set.
The Celeron will be available at 533 MHz in January (as mentioned before), though the .18 micron Celerons will not appear until February (also at 533 MHz). The 566 MHz version will show up in March, with the 600 MHz chip in the summer, and finally the 633 in the fall.
According to this article, the P7 is also supposed to be using the EPIC architecture (ala IA-64), though it will be a 32-bit chip (I am questioning this, however).
