Pentium III to get new core

Pity it's the same one that caused the 1.13GHz recall

According to ixbt labs, Intel is about to revamp its PIII Slot One chips ranging from 600 to 933MHz with the cC0 core used in the flip chip variants of the processor.

The C stepping is around five per cent smaller than the cB0 currently used, making it both more economical to manufacture and more stable at high clock speeds.

The tragically short-lived and now airbrushed-out-of-history 1.13GHz PIII used the same C stepping, although Intel maintains the instability problems exhibited at speeds in excess of 1GHz will not occur at lower frequencies. ®
