Intel has discounted rumours circulating on bulletin boards worldwide that it will name its .18 micron Coppermine processor the Pentium IV. An Intel representative said there were no plans to change the name when the chips debut next month -- as far as he was aware. Be that as it may, there is a marchitecture move afoot. Intel never silkscreened its new and shiny Pentium III logo onto Slot 1 packaging. The company wants to move Coppermine to Socket 370 and confine Slot 1 for desktops to its gulag. Postings on the bulletin boards suggest that Intel is attempting to put clear water between itself and its rival AMD. Intel has slashed its Pentium III prices many times since introduction earlier this year, while AMD is basking in the glow of the K7, launched accompanied to a series of positive reviews.
