Time for a Coppermine – or is it April Fool?
System builder launches 850MHz and 866MHz beasts, 1 April
Time Computers is to bring out PCs using Coppermine 850MHz and 866MHz chips on 1 April. The UK systems builder is hoping to make its first deliveries of machines based on the two Intel PIII processors 10-14 days later. That's providing it can get enough components from Intel. Priced at £1996 for the 850-3 CDR-TV Ultimate Time Machine, and £2113 for the 866-3, the PCs will have 30GB hard drive, 256MB SDRAM, 32MB TNT AGP x2 graphics, Integrated AC97 sound chip and 17in monitor. They will also have a DVD-ROM with MPEG-2 playback, a CD-RW and a PC-TV system with Teletext. Details of Pentium III shortages can be found here.
