PIII/600 with 133MHz FSB outed!!!

It's a cannot confirm or deny situation

Our friends over at the site which clocks many chips to their limit, and then some more, is reporting today that a British firm has posted the price and due date of an Intel 600MHz Pentium III using the long-fabled 133MHz Front Side Bus (FSB). Kyle at HardOCP is pointing to Dabs Direct, which says the part will ship on the 26th of September next. An Intel representative said: "This is probably a typo." He said that all Intel had committed to was to produce the part in the second half of this year -- and the company is on schedule so to do. No one from Dabs Direct could be contacted at press time, although a search on the phrase Pentium III does indeed reveal a Slot One version with that date. ®
