PC vendors plan to launch systems based on the multimedia-enhanced CPU on January 8 but the rumour mill has had it that Intel has stalled training the channel in order to get rid of a backlog of vanilla Pentium chips.

"It's just gossip," said a spokeswoman. "Training is already going on and the fourth quarter [October-December period] has been tremendously successful for us ... probably better than last year. MMX will launch at 166MHz and 200MHz and will initially be premium-priced but the ramp will be quick. The 133MHz Pentium is the chip for Mr. And Mrs. Average at the moment."
