Intel poo-poos 100MHz Front Side Bus Celeron
Doesn't mean it won't do it though
Intel said today that reports it was producing 366MHz and 400MHz Celerons with Front Side Bus speeds of 100MHz were spurious.
As reported here last week, that doesn't mean that Intel will not produce 100MHz FSB Celerons. Both AMD and Intel have collided over Front Side Buses recently.
(Story: AMD, Intel locked in bus war) It's just that Intel has not made its mind up yet. A representative said: "Let's speculate accurately out there, guys.."
He added that the leak of ZDNet US "was up to its usual standard of accuracy". Again, as revealed here much earlier, some Katmai products will have a 133MHz FSB but Intel is worried that if it produces a 100MHz Celeron, it will make ordinary people think twice about paying more for a Pentium II. ® Intel, in Santa Clara, is no relation to Santa Claus, in Lapland
