Intel sets 1.1GHz chip date

Intel told PC partners it will release its 1.1GHz Pentium III chip on July 31

OEMs will be able to start shipping 1.1GHz desktop systems starting that date.

The 1.1GHz chip will be available in limited volumes at first, with volume quantities not available until some time after the 1GHz processor goes out in volume.

Now that the gigahertz barrier has been broken, what's next? Will anyone care when we pass 2GHz? Michael Caton thinks not. Go and read the news comment at AnchorDesk UK.
