Intel plans to have three clock speed versions of its upcoming chip, code-named Willamette, available by early next year.
Sources say in addition to the 1.4 GHz version that will debut in the second half of this year, Intel will deliver a 1.3 GHz version of the chip in the fourth quarter. The company reportedly will follow with a 1.5GHz Willamette device in the first quarter of 2001, sources said.
However, the company has no plans to phase out production of its current Pentium III processor, and plans to ship a 933MHz version of the chip later this month, sources said.
