Pentium 4 delayed

Intel has delayed delivery of its long-awaited Pentium 4 processor, according to PC makers. Two PC makers said today that Intel notified them the processor would not be ready for delivery around Halloween, as expected, while sources at a third manufacturer said Intel indicated it may not arrive by then. The Pentium 4 is not expected until the week of Nov. 20 and possibly later.

Sources earlier said Intel planned on an Oct. 30 release date. "Pentium 4 has been scheduled to launch in the fourth quarter, and that remains unchanged," said an Intel spokesman, who declined to comment on exact dates.

One PC maker expressed exasperation at Pentium 4's delay and Intel's inability to give a firm date for the processor's release. Others said Intel had told them absolutely the processor would ship three weeks late. "I can't tell you how frustrating this is," said a source at a PC maker that requested anonymity. "It's like one glitch after another."

The Pentium 4 is viewed as an important step forward for Intel, as it moves beyond the lagging chip architecture introduced with 1996's Pentium Pro processor. With Pentium 4, which is expected to debut in 1.4-GHz and 1.5-GHz versions, Intel hopes to solve some of the problems that have plagued the Pentium III as the company ramped up the clock speed.
A recent glitch with the 1.13-GHz Pentium III processor, for example, forced Intel to recall the processor. With the this new delay, Intel has effectively made it impossible for most PC makers to deliver Pentium 4 systems in volume for the lucrative holiday shopping season.

Pentium 4 delayed

Yeah Pentuim are always stuffing up.. With their great P3 chip that has a static "IP" address where hackers can hack your computer where ever it is as long as its connected to the net (great for servers man)And with their great blistering speed, oops then da Athlon came along.. shame spoiled their fun a lil with the mnassive 1gig, cant wait until AMD's new chip release, oh i have a duron 600, and im afraid to report its faster than my mates P3 600 (benchmarcked with same hardware just chips and baords where different) And it whooped da P3's ass, yet its only £50 for a 600 Duron? hmmm now u know why Pentium are getting desperate i would like to own shares with them..

Hey for all you people that are haveing problems with AMD K6-2 chips but intels are fine maybe its because u dont know what the F**K your doing with pc's man, the only difference is that P2 chips dont have jumpers therefore tards like u can setup them up easily.. personally i think its gay coz u cant overclock your chip then. THough im pissed i cant overclock my Duron 600, my PC has been fine, my mates "TIME" (shitty computer make n e way) PC is forever ****ing up and he has got a P3 500, pants man it is way too unreliable i say down with INTEL and MICROSOFT and HURRYAY for AMD for makeing a great chip for a REALISTIC price, yeah u gunna pay £400 for a chip or £150 for one thats faster and better for games?And why do computer manufactuers use Pentium chips, because everyone knows Pentium, anyway Computer manufactuers are already useing the AMD chips now, i have seen more adverts for Athlon systems than i have for P3 systems.. hmm Buggerery for intel there.INTEL ARE A BUNCH OF **** SUCKERS THAT WANT TO RULE THE WORLD AND INTRODUCE EXTENSIVE "OVERPRICEING" and isnt it magic like always when it comes near chrismas time they bring out a new chip?Any comments to..adamking100@hotmail.comoh and AMD Rulz and will soon put INtel outta business man. Respect 4 AMD

Did i forget to mention u can safely overclock a Athlon 750mhz to a GIG no problem try doing that with a shat Intel, hmm sumthin shitty is cooking... Oh yeah man one more thingMINT MAN SHUT THE **** UP U GOD DAMN RETARD, Intel have ballsed up, AMD havent copied intel at all, infact i belive that Intel are starting to copy AMD.. Eh? hmm LOOSERS, oh yeah AMD whips ass with 3D, intel yeah fine if u wanna just open word, but who needs a 700mhz CPU to open word>?Oh who wants a 700 Intel anyway... the phrase "RETARDS ONLY"oh yeah Intels P4, cant they get alil more creative? the P1, P2, P3 and now P4 gets a lil boreing, unlike Athlon, Duron Thunderbird.. u know npo point in argueing, everyone knows Intel suck...adamking100@hotmail.com

hey has neone looked at the ratings for at AMD.coM!!? the duron actually went just as fast as the Pentium III's from Intel!!! just think bout how fast Amd's Thunderbird version is!!i'll say intel's a bit worried bout wats gonna happen..=)

Pentium 4 delayed

Stupid Pentium III That has what is known as a freezing and or crashing and or really piece of crap and jerkiness chip! I'd tell them to GET BENT!!! Question: Why does the Pentium suck? Because It costs too much!

Pentium 4 delayed

I build and repair PCs for a living, and let me tell all of you AMD fans out there, that AMD has a crap load of compatibity issue, although many were fix, some still remain, and as for a Duron being faster than a P3, thats not true, I've benchmark them, and as for the P4 and the Thunderbird, I believe both of them will have problems for the first few months of release, and Stephen, the Athlon had problems when it first was release, all new products have problems when first release, I rather have Intel delay the P4 and get it right, then having the problems AMD had when the Athlon first was released to the market.

Pentium 4 delayed

Ninja, you must be a dumbass, or somesome, you computer freezing and crashing are due to some type of hardware conflict, I've owned a P3-600 since the day it came out, and I haven't ever got a problem with it, unlike my friend, who is a not so proud owner of a Athlon, due to all the hardware compatiblity issues an Athlon has.

Pentium 4 delayed

AMD always sucked, always will suck, and the reason there prices are some low, because they are cheap piece of shits, and thats the only way they can get all of you stupid ass AMD fans to buy their shitty chips, I think I rather have a chipset thats works than buy one with many compatiblity issues.. SO Fu@K AMD, AND Fu@K all of you AMD losers out there.

Pentium 4 delayed

to all u knobshinging intel luvers, i hope all ur crapy celerons,p2 and p3 all crash and die if they havent already!!!(which im sure they have)AMD has ruled from the begining. i have only a athlon 650 and it is the best computer ive ever had. i have had no troubles with reliability, speed or running any applications. all uz assholes who wouldnt have a clue about amds and r just relying on magazines like pcwold, user and authority r stupid. intel doesnt want a belmish on their so-called reputation so they bribe them to give them good results. and also, what kind of ****head magazines test on quake 3???????? y not a real game like deus ex or somethin.bottom lineIntel-piswackersAmd-heros!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pentium 4 delayed

who gives a **** abouut anything? just think happy thoughts,and all ur processor worries will float away....................................( amd does suck by the way------ made 4 cheap skiddy rifters!)

Pentium 4 delayed

i hate amd!!!!!! pentium rules!! i have a pentiun 3 800mhz and it the best computer i have ever had!!! i had a amd but that suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PentIuM RuLeS AmD SuCkS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pentium 4 delayed

First off all you people are acting like immature faggots. Second of all, everyone needs to quit dissing the other type of processor, everyone has a favorite and it will always be split. Now I have only owned 2 computers in my life. An old P 233, and a newer P3 550, now all applications, games, etc. work excellent on my computer, i have no crashes, no issues at all. My old computer was a little more stable you can see that but not by alot. Intel builds excellent processors. All you people saying your P3 crashed all the time, ever stop to think, you might have caused it? After all they don't release products that don't work, if they do it's recall time. I am not dissing AMD either, theit processors are fast, cheaper, and excellent as well, and all you intel fans, that say they have all those issues, it might be you as well thats causing them. So just shut the hell up and act like human beings.

AMD is good, so is Intel..i just happen to be an AMD kind of guy. Underdog takes the win. That's why the Athlon and AMD K6-3 beat out the pentium II and III as far as performance and at a better price

Pentium 4 delayed

hey ****_dead_intel, intel owns. and amd hasnt always, and never ruled, they r only recently competitive, 2 years ago u could use a pc w/o even hearing about useless amd. btw deus ex sux.amd-lamers !!

Pentium 4 delayed

AMD and Intel processors both have their plusses. AMD's are cheaper, and the new thunderbirds are slightly faster. P3's are a little more expensive and slower, but their ess susceptible to heat damage. BTW, the P4 that's coming out will actually be slower than an equivilant speed P3 or Thunderbird due to a decrease in processor effeciency.

Pentium 4 delayed

Intel or AMD gee let me think the p3 1000 kicks the athlon 1000's ass by almost 10% cos AMD sux and INTEl are the true gods of processors plus the fact that they have been in the game longer and they know what they are talking about

WHY U ALL THINK THAT INTEL IS GOING TO LOWER THE PRICES OF THE P3 AND THE CELERONS THATS BECAUSE AMD HAVE GOT IT RIGHT AND THERE KICKING INTAL ASS ALL OVER THE PLACE. GO AMDOH BYE THE THE WAY AMD HAVE NEVER HAD TO RECALL THE ATHLON PROCESSORE CHIPS NOT LIKE INTEL WITH THERE 1.13GHZ CHIPS SO WHO MAKES SHITY CHIPS INTEL THAT WHO

Pentium 4 delayed

we all know that AMD are the cheapest of the two o and shiter so why not f*ck the totaly untrue comments about intel cos everyone knows that they lead the market.everyone knows that "tiny" & "time" pcs are shit and the only reason for this is because they use shitty AMD processors.....and that all i need say

Pentium 4 delayed

Christ! as it stands AMD are the fastest for COMMERCIAL processors, P3 Xeons are going to be faster anyhoo because of what they are built for! Why dont u stupid yanks get a life and stop Bitching!

Pentium 4 delayed

AMD vs. Intel? Why is anyone trying to compare? Does anyone really know who is faster? Judging by these lame responses, it sounds like no one really knows how important a FLOATING POINT PROCESSOR really is. If your stupid and don't need your computer to do any real number crunching, then get an AMD.

Pentium 4 delayed

why the hell are you bagging the hell out if the pentium chip. i have just bought a p3 700 and it is a hell of a lot faster than my friendsAMD 700. when my friends computer has alot of stuff on it the AMD chip is so piss week it is pathetic, and on my P3 has a 20 gig harddrive and i have used 7.5 gig and it is running as fast as it ever hasPentium leeds the market in processor sales so they must be doing something right!!!!!Bye!!!!

Pentium 4 delayed

Bitches!Who cares, floating point blah blah...who gives a shit... 2 questions...1. Is it cheap?2. Will it run HALO when/if it comes out?If yes, then BUY foolswho cares about "my intel is faster than your amd!" shit... cause for the same price of the intel you could buy like the entire AMD corp... intel overpriced bastards.THx

Pentium 4 delayed

ok. so both amd and intel have made their mistakes. intel may have had their uppoints but amd has proven it is in the same class if not better during the time it has been around. i recon we should have a real pole:which would win??duron 700 v. celeron 700duron 750 v. p2 700duron 750 v. p3 750athlon 800 v. p3 800athlon 900 v. p3 900athlon 1000 v. p3 1000and from current newsthunderbird 1.1 v. p4 1.1i think that amd would kill in the duron v celeron class and athlon would be pretty close with a p3and a thunderbird would demolish a p4put ur comments on the board or email me with ur comments

Pentium 4 delayed

U intel pisswackers u wouldn't have a clue about CPU'S!!!!! U dont know crap AMD have and always be the fastest and more reliable. I have an Athlon 700 at home and it is faster than a p3 833!!!! eazily!!!! INTEL SUX ****S AND THEY CANT MAKE CPUS FOR CRAP!!!!!!! THAY SUCK!!!!! bottom lineINTEL SUCK AMD RULE!!!!!!!!

Pentium 4 delayed

The enviroment is very important for the CPU, i talking about yhe System Board and i think the Intel's Processor are very fast than AMD, BUT for games right now are better AMD Cpu's..

Pentium 4 delayed

AMD is not popular because it doesn't do any commercials. Intel however have the funds so they can do lots of commercials to influenze the people, that don't know much about computers.AMD is faster, better and cheaper than Intel. So people which buy AMD are more likely to have a better deal, which counts for performance and speed.TIPS: From what i've read from computer catalogs, there is no difference with applications between a Celeron 500mhz and a Pentium 3 1000mhz.So from what I have to say, AMD is more advance than than Intel!

Pentium 4 delayed

Intel is the best for games you dumb ****s go to madonion look at fastest PC's they all use Intel you ****s AMD is amaizing good price good performance quality not sure there have beed fake AMD watch out the box is a bit fake like the corners of it are rounded on a original box they are sharp CHECK YOUR BOX SEE YA GAMERS
