Cumine 7xx processors confirmed for late October

It's not from the horse's mouth, but it's pretty close

Intel Developer Forum A US distributor told The Register today that he had been promised delivery of 7xx Coppermine Pentium IIIs by the end of October. He said his Intel representative would not be pinned down on the exact speed of the chips, but would get them, in quantity, at the end of October or in very early November. Yesterday, Craig Barrett, Intel's CEO, tasked senior VP Pat Gelsinger to produce Coppermine Pentium IIIs in October. Said the distributor: "I had originally been told that I would have supplies of the Pentium III towards the end of the year. But, last week, I had a call telling me that the date had been brought forward." The distributor, who told us on strict conditions of anonymity, said he viewed the move as a reaction to AMD's Athlon K7. ® Full IDF Summer 99 coverage
