Intel in Revelations avoidance shocker

...666? Not us mate

Clock speed anoraks will be thrilled to know that the forthcoming Intel Coppermine processors will avoid all accusations of devilment and general nastiness by not appearing in 666MHz guise. Not for Intel the number of the beast, oh dearie no. For there will not be a 666MHz Coppermine, instead a wholesome 667MHz part is billed for shipment in the middle of next year. At 133MHz FSB, that means a clock multiplier of a nice round number in the region of 5.01503759398496240601503759398496. Great Satan of Chips? Absolutely not. ®
