Coming soon: 850 and 866MHz Pentium III processors from Intel. In response to AMD's recent Athlon 850 launch, the big I is going to raise the ante once more. However, with continuing reports of shortages of Intel's 800MHz parts, one has to wonder whether this isn't more about bragging rights than about shipping faster processors in volume.
AMD, meanwhile, seems content to be in the hunt on top speeds while shipping in volume and at lower prices. In fact, the Register is reporting that there will be an Athlon 933MHz version selling for less than $850 in April.
If indeed AMD ships an Athlon rated at 933MHz, it will most likely be targeted at a 266MHz (or 133MHz DDR, more precisely) system bus. Should be crazy fast.
