Sources close to Intel's plans have told The Register that for a period of time .25 micron Katmai was cancelled. But Intel resuscitated the beast because of the ominous threat of the K6-III, the well-informed source said today. "Time to market rules at Intel, always," the source said. "Coppermine with more L2 cache is a further attempt to kill the K6-III and prepare for the introduction of the K7." He said: "The Katmai core, common to all these products, is little more than a Deschutes, itself a shrink of Klamath P6SC technology with an improved FPU and multimedia execution units." He said that Deschutes was probably the best CPU Intel had ever fabbed, and the core for the Pentium III, Xeon, Celeron, Celeron A, mobile Pentium II and mobile Celeron. "They'll continue to milk that core for everything they can get out of it," he said. It was somewhat flattering for AMD that Intel, the shark, should take the minnow's plans so seriously, he added. Another source, also close to Intel's plans said: "Intel sees AMD as its big threat and not players like Cyrix, Rise and IDT. "®
