Intel's 775-pin version of its 90nm Pentium 4 processor - aka 'Prescott' - will not now appear in May but sometime during the following month.

So say sources from within Taiwan's PC manufacturer community, according to DigiTimes.

The shift to June represents shipments to system builders. Shipments to the distributors that server smaller PC makers, retailers and the like will be delayed until July, from June, the sources claim.

The reason for the shift is said to be Intel's drive to promote 90nm CPUs and then rampu up their production. It may also have had something to do with Intel's decision to adopt a new naming scheme for the processors. Desktop P4s will be shipped as 500-series chips, Intel has said. The new naming scheme will debut next quarter, probably with the 90nm Pentium M, Dothan, which will ship as the Pentium M 7xx family. ®
