Intel 933MHz Pentium III slated for May

Not quite a gig but pretty close

Sources close to Intel's plans say that it has now included a 933MHz Pentium III processor on its roadmap. This is an iteration of the 133MHz bus speed, with a multiplier of seven. The 933MHz part is likely to be the last of the Pentium III Coppermine series, with Intel, on its official roadmap at least, scheduled to introduce the Willamette IA-32 architecture in the second half of this year. That, as we reported elsewhere today, may change as a response to increased competition from AMD with its Athlon microprocessor. Intel will not comment on unannounced products. ®
