Intel introduced three new Slot 1 PC processors last week, as expected (see PC Week, 21 July). The chips, formerly code-named Mendocino, were the Celeron 300MHz and 333MHz with 128Kb of Level II cache, the lack of which had hampered sales of earlier incarnations of the low-end chip.
Intel also launched the last chip in the present line of Pentium II processors at 450MHz. The next professional PC chips will be from the family code-named Katmai, which will have improved multimedia performance. Katmai chips running at 450MHz and 500MHz are scheduled for next year.
