Intel will use the Superbowl game in mid-January to introduce its Katmai chip to a waiting universe and will call it Pentium III, it has emerged. One year ago, The Register said that Katmai would be called the Pentium III. (Story:Intel to slash PII prices next month) US magazine Advertising Age leaked the details earlier this week. Last week, The Register published a story saying there was some internal discussion about whether to drop the Pentium III name in favour of another. An Intel representative said today he could neither confirm nor deny that Katmai will be the Pentium III, nor whether the Superbowl would be the venue. Meanwhile, the Pentium mobile platform will be called the Pentium IIe and will be introduced later in January. Formerly called Dixons, it will include 256K cache on die. ®
