Monday, Intel will release its 1.13 GHz Pentium III but Advanced Micro Devices will follow only a month later with its 1.1 GHz Athlon. The Intel product will sell for about $990 in volume and is expected to show up in Dell and IBM boxes, among others. Reportedly, Intel will drop the price of 1 GHz Pentium IIIs to about $750 but won’t cut other Pentium III prices. AMD is readying Athlon chips for the notebook market and, in Q4, will release its Corvette, a low-power version of Athlon for high-end notebooks and desktops, and Camaro, for lower-cost computers.
