EBN Online meldt in een artikel over de release van de nieuwe Celeron dat de Pentium III Xeon 700 en 800 met een maand gedelayed is:
Aside from adjusting the release date of certain microprocessors by about a week, OEM sources say that Intel's product roadmap has been left largely intact since Jan. [http://www.ebnonline.com/digest/story/OEG20000211S0068] While 633- and 667-MHz desktop Celerons are still slated for launch on April 26, most of Intel's upcoming releases will be mobile microprocessors: a 700-MHz chip on April 17th and a Celeron on April 24th, the sources said.
As of now, the only significant adjustment to the microprocessor roadmap is a month's delay in the 700- and 800-MHz Xeon, the fastest Xeons to feature large 1- and 2-Mbyte-level caches in quite some time. As of now, it is unclear whether the delay of the new Xeons, now slated for May 22, represents a manufacturing issue, as one source suggested, or merely an adjustment in Intel's schedule of product releases. An Intel spokesman at the company's Santa Clara, Calif., headquarters said he was unaware of any product delays.
Ik dacht dat de Xeon 800 al geïntroduceerd was? (of bedoelen ze hier alleen de 1 en 2MB versies?)
