Intel Brings Pentium III Launch Forward

The Pentium III and K6-3 battle ratched up a further notch today as it emerged Intel will launch its chip a week earlier than AMD's.

But AMD said today it will bring forward the introduction of its Sharptooth K6-3D processor to before Intel's launch.

Intel had originally intended to introduce the Pentium III (Katmai) at the end of the month but has brought the date forward to attempt to stymie AMD's introduction.

A reliable source near to AMD's plans, said she couldn't give the exact date but it will be before Intel's introduction, dubbed a "preview event".
