HWRoundup Intel has punted out the 0.13 micron PIII processor, based on the Tualatin core, at 1.2GHz. And the hardware sites have had a good look.

All mention the balls up that was the arrival and withdrawal of the 1.13GHz PIII more than a year ago

Anandtech remarks on the tardiness of its arrival. It's too late, and it's overpriced. ."The price Intel is asking for the processors, although understandable from a marketing standpoint, makes obtaining a desktop Pentium III 1.2 very undesirable," says Anand.

Roll on P4s and a 1.2GHz Celeron variant of the 0.13-micron Tualatin core.

At Hot Hardware though, they were impressed with the maturity and stability of the processor, and believe it will round out Intel's product portfolio nicely.

Over at Tech-Report they thought the chip was beginning to show its age. "The test results speak for themselves. The PIII 1.2GHz is still in the running with the gigahertz-plus competition, but in 3D graphics and other multimedia-type tasks, the newer processors-and their newer platforms-rule the roost. ®
