Slot 1 reports back
Intel plans to produce a new edition of the Pentium III 600 in slot 1 design. The reason could be the increasing competition of the Duron from AMD, which is making Intel the low-cost sector disputed
Intel wants to produce 500,000 Pentum III with 600 MHz for slot 1. The success depends largely on the price of the processor: a Duron with 600 MHz currently costs just under 180 DM, the 700 MHz variant just under 200 DM.
