Top three mobile application threats

Intel will follow up its 2 August 600MHz Pentium III and 500MHz Celeron launch with the announcement of its eight-way Xeon server chip on 23 August, mobile Celerons on 15 September and the 133MHz 820 chipset on 27 September. The Xeon announcement will see Chipzilla unveil the ship date and pricing for a 550MHz version of the CPU. This will feature the PIII's Streaming SIMD Extension, and support a 100MHz frontside bus, up to 2MB of cache and eight-way multiprocessing. Three weeks later, on 15 September, Intel will debut 433MHz and 466MHz Mobile Celerons. Interestingly, that's around the time Apple will launch its iBook consumer-oriented notebook, a machine that, at $1599, will compete directly with Wintel notebooks based on the new Celerons. Two more weeks down the line, and we should get to see the 820 chipset, which will introduce Rambus Direct DRAM technology and a 133MHz frontside bus. Given the problems Intel appears to be having with the 810 chipset -- getting the production quality right and persuading mobo vendors to use it -- it may be some time before the 820 becomes available in volume. Chipzilla will also roll out 533MHz and 600MHz PIIIs on the 27th. If Intel is introducing a 600MHz PIII on Monday, that suggests we're talking about Geyserville here, Intel's upcoming 0.18 micron Mobile Pentium III, aka Coppermine. That's due to ship at the end of the year, so a late Q3 announcement would be good timing. For the full skinny on Geyserville, pop over to our handy What the Hell is... item. ®
