Seven Steps to Software Security

The overflowing coffers of Intel generally garners are likely to be one coin short of a lottery win this year, a major analyst group is warning. Analyst group Credit Suisse First Boston is lowering earnings estimates because it is predicting problems with Coppermine coupled with too high sales of Celeron processors. The group thinks that Coppermine will be delayed until back endish and is not delivering the speed yields Intel expected, as revealed here earlier. The same group expects Merced samples to leave Intel's doors in August. However, the real hit to Intel earnings is expected to be caused by higher sales of the Celeron than expected. AMD has always maintained that Intel would feel pain if it continued to ship the low profit products in such quantities. Intel will make more price cuts on the Pentium II family next week. Last weekend, it slashed prices on its mobile parts by over 40 per cent. As the world and its dog knows but as Intel always downplays, a Celeron is a kind of emasculated Pentium II. Droves of people have now realised that and have been snapping up the bargain-basement chip. ® See also Coppermine delay could give Intel aid Celeron trashes PII in new RegMark tests
