SANS - Survey on application security programs

Updated Intel will once more slash prices on the 12th September next to make way for the introduction of 533(B)MHz and 600(B)MHz parts, it has emerged. These parts will support 133MHz front side buses (FSBs). It would be a nice surprise for everyone if they were Coppermine parts, but we're not absolutely certain they are. We do know, having seen an Intel email, that the 533B and 600B are being offered to the channel early. As to the price cuts, there will be a 12 per cent price cut across the Pentium III and Celeron boards, with some parts being reduced more, and some less, than others. The 600MHz Pentium III will be reduced by eight per cent, while the highest cut will be 15 per cent on the Celeron 466. Over the weekend we reported that a fresh tranche of price cuts on Pentium IIIs and Celerons was in the offing. (See Intel to cut Celeron PIII prices 12 September) The 27th of September is the release date for Intel's i820 Camino chipset. We reported that this would happen here. These processors will plug nicely into those boards in the runup to the "corporate" introduction on the 27th, with dealers being given the chance by Intel to buy three and only three of each as part of an early programme. Meanwhile, more pictures of Camino mobos are popping up all over the Web. Here, for example, a Thai site has some pix up. Later in the day, we will provide information on the adjustments Intel will make on the 12th. Data sheets for a Socket 370 Pentium III processor were on display at the Intel Developer Forum last week. ® Full Intel Developer Forum coverage
