The Register is reporting that Intel will launch its first 1GHz mobile Pentium III CPU this Monday, the same day that AMD is expected to ship the mobile Palomino Athlon.
This sort of timing reminds me strongly of the years past with Intelboldly announcing via press releases new processors able to compete against the similarly launched Athlons, but then being unable to provide those processors in any significant quantity. Intel appears to be smart enough to avoid that mistake again, though. This launch meets with their announced roadmap. Furthermore, The Register's sources report that the announcement of the PIII 1GHz mobile will bring about an immediate shipment of notebooks from vendors IBM, Hewlet-Packard, and Dell.
It seems Intel is putting their money where their mouth is. What a rather nice change of pace.
