Intel's roadmap for the summer
There is once again some information on Intel's current processor plans that shed a little more light on this summer. In particular, the 0.13 µm Intel Pentium III code name Tualatin appears several times and is intended to liven up the summer business a bit.
Although Intel has already delivered the first Mobile Pentium III Tualatin for test purposes to various mainboard manufacturers, as reported by company-related sources, this processor will be supplied to the server market first. Tomorrow, June 19th, the server version of the Tualatin will be presented, which will have a 256 or 512KB level 2 cache and should be operated with a clock frequency of 1.13GHz. About two weeks later, exactly on July 2nd, two new Pentium 4 models with 1.6 and 1.8 GHz, as well as an Intel Celeron clocked with 900 MHz and an 850 MHz mobile version of the same will follow. On July 30th, the Tualatin will conquer the notebook market, which should be available in clock frequencies from 866MHz to 1.13GHz. At the same time, Intel will also present a new mobile chipset that supports the new processor and will be called the i830MP. All desktop users, on the other hand, will have to wait a week longer for their Tualatin, which will be presented on August 6th with a happy ending and will be available for purchase from this date onwards at frequencies from 1.13 to 1.2 GHz.
