The Register meldt dat Intel om onduidelijk reden de release van de PIII 866 en 850 geschrapt heeft. De prijs van de 866 en 850 werd eerder vandaag bekend gemaakt, maar deze mogen we blijkbaar al weer vergeten:
Roadmaps Intel sent to both its channel and OEM partners last week showed that the company was set to release 866MHz and 850MHz Pentium IIIs today, as well as a pair of faster Celerons. But according to an Intel representative today, there are no plans to release the microprocessors in the "imminent future".
That led us to ask whether it would release such parts in the "near future", to which the reply came it depended what the "near future" meant.
[...] Intel refused to comment on information that was not publicly available at press time, but it always says to its channel partners that it can change prices and product specifications whenever it chooses.
