A German magazine has obtained a Klamath motherboard and revealed that Intel will formally announce it at this spring's Cebit trade show in Hanover.
Tests 'CT' magazine performed on both 16-bit and 32-bit software showed that the Klamath performs consistently faster than the Pentium Pro, which means that vendors are likely to prefer it to the existing chip.
The magazine confirms that the Klamath will be significantly cheaper than the Pentium Pro because of lower manufacturing costs.
The Klamath will come with MMX extensions and the magazine warns that people contemplating buying a Pentium Pro should wait until after Cebit before buying, because of the performance gains. That argument may apply to Pentium MMX chips too, which are likely to be superseded by introductions of Klamath in the home market for this coming Christmas.
