Intel's 1.13-GHz Pentium III Delayed Again

Intel Corp. is entirely reworking the 1.13-GHz Pentium III chip on its own, delaying the processor until the second quarter of next year.
All of Intel's 0.18-micron Pentium III line is undergoing a new core "stepping," or manufacturing revision, according to a product change notification notice sent out by Intel.
A second, newer stepping will be used to fabricate the new 1.13-GHz chip, an Intel spokesman said.
Such steppings are uncommon, although expected through the course of a chip's life. New steppings are usually used to fix errata in the chips, or allow those chips to run at higher speeds.
What is unusual, said industry sources, is that the new steppings are usually planned to prevent an interruption in the steady introduction of faster clock speeds.
Intel, announced "limited production volumes" of the 1.13-GHz Pentium III in July, in a war of press releases the company has waged with rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc.

However, Intel pulled the plug on the 1.13-GHz chip at the end of August after noting an intermittent glitch that could result in data loss.
Why bother jumping through hoops with a part that was going to be released in limited availability?" one analyst asked.
All of the Pentium III microprocessors from 800-MHz on up will be affected by the so-called "C0" stepping, which has been in circulation for some time now, albeit in sample form.
The C0 stepping shrinks the Pentium III's die size by 5 percent, also correcting some latent errata.
Intel's plan is to release the new 1.13-GHz chip in a "flip-chip" FC-PGA package only, which will use an entirely new stepping, the Intel spokesman said without elaboration.

At this rate the 1.13 GHz Pentium 3 will be the first processor released after its successor, the pentium 4.

Intel's 1.13-GHz Pentium III Delayed Again

There are alot of non intelligent responses posted,can any one ****ing spell....?I have Intel and AMD 800 and the AMD shits all over the Intel in general appsand games.Go with quality at a good price.And will some of those braindead ****s do their homework before writing "AMD Rulz" work it out!

Intel's 1.13-GHz Pentium III Delayed Again

well. with my opion . amd and p3 is both the same same SAME SAME SAME AND SAME SAME SAMENOONE OF THEM IS BETTERTHAN ORTHERBACK TO 5 YEARS AGOwhat is it speed????? MAX=133mhzwhat is up with the 1000mhz???i will question all of you okwhat speed of a CPU need to RUN 1 PROGRAM???????p2 300mhz is enough!!!!have u try a dual pentium 200mhz with 1Gb RAm yet???it run faster than your 1000mhz with 128 RAm . boy!!!dont say INTEL SUCK or AMD suckboth of them is SAMEif u know how to use themyou make them faster:-)

Intel is the best but they are loosing a lot of costumers since the chips are being delayed all the time. i Think that it is just a big scam to keep prices high sine when they realse a new processor the price of the old one drops dramaticly. That is the same story with the P4 it has been delayed 2 months i will come out at the end of November at the erliest.

Ok, you foolish ****s, I don't think any of you have the right to say:"AMD sucks"/"INTEL sucks"...Makes me so mad, I'm highly sure you guys do NOT have a frame of refrence, and if so, thats ****ing great...Im happy with an AMD 900mhz TNT2 Pro, 200mhz FSB (teehee). I don't think I will ever need any upgrades for a LONG time.Besides, what would you need +900mhz for? Faster typing? Better gaming?As if any game uses, sorry, needs a chip that fast. And if so, fire the dev team...

AMD really sucks!!Intel is the best!!!!!!!Intel have been a long company for producing these CPu chips..so it's nothing much about AMDlast time AMD almost gone.... buttherefore....what can i say??intel is still the bestI am using a P3 933mhz with 128 of RDRAMgeforce 2 GTS.....Live Platinum....Well...It's rocks....compared to AMD???Intel RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Intel's 1.13-GHz Pentium III Delayed Again

I wont put down AMD, they do make good CPUs...but they say that the benchmarks used to compare the P3 and Athlon were OPTIMIZED for 3D Now technology. if you read that AMD was better in a magazine...try and find out yourself. I read in PC Gamer that a ATI Radeon is faster then a GeForce2 GTS...well it aint, ive tested both and my GeForce2 is faster...if your going to put something down FIND out for yourself which ones better and benchmark it yourself :)

Hi, EveryoneIntel and AMD are both great chips.I would buy Intel over AMD but thats because i have been a intel fan since the DX days.AMD chips have there strong parts.1. is the low cost, but thats only because an Athlon chip is already O/Ced.if bought a Athlon 800 at whatever dollars your really only buying a Athlon 700 so its really much cheaper to OC a chip and sell it at a low cost because manufacturing a higher MHZed chip would be more. So when it comes down to choosing would u like a chip thats already O/Ced w/ less stabilty and save urseslf 50-100$? or would u rather have a chip thats NOT O/Ced w/ better stabilty w/ all other hardware??The chose is urs. But i would go w/ Intel.P.S. u don't need to go higher then 800Mhz and a 32mb Video Care whatever the need is forBTW, My PC =AsusTek P3V4X ^.^P3 733E 133 O/Ced to 820MhzMaxtor 30Gb 7200 RPM HDD256Mb pc-133nVidia Geforce256 3D-Prophet DDR-DVI 32mbPlextor PlexWriter 12/10/32Kenwood 72x CD-ROMViewsonic E790 19' MonitorP.S.S Im lying, this is my dream machine.soon i will have this

If you want some good info on the p3 vs the athlon go to [url removed] lays down all the good things and bad things about intel and amd. See the truth about the cpu, and for the people that think that athlons are unstable it is most likely the motherboard not the cpu. Take a look, it is some good info and not bias.

Read the "Pentium Announces Price Cuts" news and message board. Who is the one who sucks? They are jealous because they wasted more money on their Pentium chips and they want to brag about it even though they suck. Not even with their Cookie Inside, the motherboard server that gets their data can't solve their chip problems.

Intel's 1.13-GHz Pentium III Delayed Again

**** you all AMD and Intel are same to me I have Intel but Iam thinking of getting 1.1 ghz or wait for a faster one i dont agrgue they are both good for gaming and benchmarks same The only problem 3dmark 2k doesnt use 3dnow! witch makes the AMD score lower but this doesnt mean that it sux all games an 1.33 intel run 5-10 fps faster than 1.1 amdSO PC GAMERS RELAX AMD AND INTEL BOTH SUCK **** WE WONT LOWER PRICES AND FASTER CPU@S AND A CPU DESIGHNED FOR GAMING !!!!!!!!!!!!! that doesnt exist
