Intel's Willamette, aka Pentium 4, is to launch in Mid October. The 32 bit chip will first appear as a 1.4GHz part, with a speed bump to 1.5GHz before the end of the year.

The Pentium 4 will have a 400MHz bus, employ 128 bit Screaming Sindy Two (SSE2) rather than the current 64 bit SSE. At IDF this week, Senior Intel VP Albert Yu demoed a Pentium 4 running at 2GHz.

The October date is a bitter personal disappointment as I bet Mike £5 that Willamette would appear before the end of August.
