Seven Steps to Software Security

Intel Developer Forum Notebook versions of the Pentium III/mobile manufactured using a 0.18 micron process technology will arrive this autumn, Intel said today. Frank Spindler, VP of Intel US mobile division, said that the chip will be released at speeds of up to 500MHz. But, he said, Geyserville would not be incorporated into PIII/mobile parts until processor speeds matched those of desktop chips. He admitted that the Pentium III/mobile had arrived later than expected by saying: "We did not hit our most aggressive schedule." Spindler said the form factor for the mobile Pentium III was likely to be smaller for the equivalent Pentium II/mobile part. The PIII/mobile will arrive fall, which we suppose is around October, but Spindler would not be drawn on a specific date, or on pricing. He said that Intel was considering future notebook chips which would allow its partners to configure notebook machines, but thought the prospects of end users being able to do so was some time away. Geyserville versions are likely to appear in Q1 of next year at speeds of 600MHz and higher, said Spindler. ® Full IDF Summer 99 coverage
