A distributor said Monday that he had a copy of an Intel roadmap which showed that .18 micron Coppermine technology will include 256K of on-die cache.
The cache will be on both Pentium IIIs and Pentium III Xeons, according to the source, who declined to be named.
The technology is waiting for the chipset to arrive but is expected to proliferate during the second half of this year, he said.
It will debut at 600MHz but Intel will expect a premium from customers, with prices expected to be in the $750 range.
Last week, Intel refused to comment on whether the processors will have on-die cache.
