Intel will indeed release server-oriented 0.13 micron Pentium III processors today, one of the Great Satan's spokesimps has confirmed.

The chips - better known by their codename, Tualatin - will be branded as Pentium III. Despite being intended for server applications, they won't be marked as Xeon parts.

As we reported yesterday, the 1.13GHz 0.13 micron PIII with 512KB of on-die L2 is officially shipping. We say 'officially', but the truth is that the parts have been filtering through to OEMs since last month, as we've mentioned before. And Intel isn't making much of a fuss about the launch - in essence, today is just the point at which OEM customers are allowed to announce boxes based on the chips. Heck, even the chipsets the server part will work with are made by third-parties, specifically ServerWorks and Micron.

Instead, Intel is focusing its efforts on the mobile version of Tualatin, which is expected to take place on 30 July. That will be followed by the launch of the desktop parts on 6 August. Intel's spokesman would only confirm that the next Tualatin launch will focus on mobile processors and take place in Q3.

Incidentally, the accuracy of the information we received yesterday, suggests that the other point - that a 1.8GHz Pentium 4 will ship on 2 July - can be taken with a few fewer grains of salt. ®
