Intel's Pentium 4 is now scheduled for launch at the end of November in 1.4 and 1.5GHz guises.

The entry level P4 should debut at 1.4Ghz, priced at $652, while the premium part will ship at 1.5Ghz and $827.

It's intriguing that our original intelligence pointed at a launch at 1.3 and 1.4GHz, costing $635 and $805 respectively. For the 1.4GHz part to have been reduced by $150 before it ever hit the shelves could be seen as an indication of the perceived level of the AMD price/performance threat. ®
