Intel denies LGA775 P4 delay
'Will ship on time'
Intel has denied that it has knocked back the 775-pin version of its 90nm Pentium 4 processor a month to June.
The claim, made yesterday in a DigiTimes report citing Taiwanese PC manufacturer sources, centred on Intel's plan to promote 90nm CPUs and get the chips' production output up.
The delay was also thought to 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. ®
