Confirmation of Intel's upcoming Coppermine Pentium III have come courtesy of UK PC vendor Mesh which today announced its first desktop based on the part. As anticipated, the PIII will ship at 733MHz -- "with faster processor speeds in the pipeline", Mesh warns; according to Intel's pitch at Microprocessor Forum, 800MHz and beyond -- fabbed using a 0.18 micron process. The chip will contain 256K of on-die L2 cache and supports a 133MHz frontside bus. Put all this together and you get, apparently, a "25 per cent performance increase", though increase over what, Mesh doesn't mention -- not a 700MHz Athlon, we'd hazard to guess, but Intel's current PIII running on a 133MHz FSB. Mesh's PIII-powered PC is the latest addition to its Elite line, and will ship in two versions. In addition to Chipzilla's newest CPU, the Elite Pegasus will contain 128MB of SDRAM, 16.8GB hard drive, Matrox Millennium G400 graphics card with 32MB of VRAM, 10x DVD-ROM drive, Zip drive and Creative Labs sound card. Bundle with the PC are a Diamond Multimedia modem and a 17in Sony monitor. The Elite Entertainer will ship with a 19in Taxan screen, 20GB hard drive, 32MB ATI Rage Fury graphics card, Creative Labs SoundBlaster Live card, four-point surround sound speakers and a built-in CD-RW drive. Other specs. match the Pegasus' configuration. Both PCs will ship on Monday, the day Intel is due to take the wraps off the Coppermine. ® Related Stories Consumers face PC confusion post-Coppermine launch Intel mobo prices and spex for the 24th: we got the lot Intel Coppermine mobiles: we got the prices Coppermine prices -- it's an Intel goldmine
