Intel is due to launch nine more versions of its Pentium III chip this quarter. The chip giant is on track to add 733 and 667MHz versions of the processor, with SECC2 Package, .18 micron process technology, supporting 133MHz system bus, by the end of 1999. They will come with 256KB on-Die full speed L2 Cache. These will have the same specifications as the 600EB and 533EB versions of the Coppermine family, which is due to launch on 24 October. Sources have revealed that there will be 700, 650 and 600E versions of the PIII using a 100MHz system bus. They will have the SECC2 Package, .18 micron process technology and 256KB on-die full speed L2 Cache. The 550E and 500E will use the FC-PGA370 package, with .25 micron process technology, 100MHz system bus and 256KB on-die full speed L2 cache. The E, B, and EB naming conventions are to be used to distinguish the processors from current PIII Slot 1 processors. The new naming conventions were first revealed by The Register last month. Last Monday, Intel launched the 600B and 533B versions of the Pentium III, each supporting the 133MHz bus. The range is currently available at 600, 550, 533, 500 and 450MHz. Last week, Intel also spectacularly canned the long-awaited launch of the i820 chipset. ®
