The 866MHz and 850MHz Pentium III Coppermines which Intel delayed so it could rush a 1GHz processor out of the door will be formally announced next Monday. The prices are around $760/1000 and $660/1000 respectively, but sources both in the channel and at second tier OEMs suspect that they won't be able to supply systems using the processors for quite some time. As with the 1GHz microprocessor, supplies are likely to go to the Dells, Compaqs, HPs and IBMs of this world before they percolate down to smaller system builders and to distributors and dealers. One OEM who declined to be named said: "AMD is chasing Intel down now. Sales of Athlons now represent over 80 per cent of out slot based systems." Intel will not comment on unannounced products. ®
