Intel's Pentium 4, due for launch at the end of October, may initially only be available in 1.3 and 1.4GHz variants, very reliable sources told The Register today.

The evidence comes in the shape of the pricing for the new chip -
The 1.3Ghz P4 is priced at $635, while the 1.4GHz variant will set you back $805.

There is no mention of a price for a 1.5GHz or higher part.

The prices themselves are quite attractive - a 1GHz PIII currently lists at $669, although this will almost certainly drop below $500 when Willamette / P4 hits the streets at the end of next month.

Of course, the rest of the shooting match will add up to a fair few extra bucks, what with P4 initially demanding a Rambus, aka expensive, memory solution. ®
