Chipzilla's 1.7GHz Pentium 4 will be released "very shortly", the chip colossus' CTO, Pat 'Harry Potter' Gelsinger, told WinHEC attendees yesterday.

Pat's comment tends to confirm our own expectation, derived from our internal Intel roadmaps, that the part will debut on or soon after 15 April, handsomely priced at $776 in units of 1000 before falling to $669 on 27 May.

And 2GHz P4s are scheduled to show up early Q3, just in time for the PC-133 SDRAM supporting Brookdale chipset designed to get the CPU into primetime. ®
