An advantage of 500 MHz. This should be in Intel's plans the advantage on which the Pentium processors will count towards the AMD ones. The strategy, which provides for an aggressive growth in the nominal speed of the chips, has been announced by the major managers of Intel who have in this perspective, the rapid disposal of the entire Pentium III series is also proposed. “The chips par excellence in the desktop sector – said Paul Otellini – will be the Pentium 4. The 1.5GHz and 1.6GHz versions of the Pentium 4 will take the place of the 900MHz and 1GHz ones of the Pentium III. A 2 GHz version will be launched by the end of the month ”At the moment, Intel's fastest processor reaches 1.8 GHz, that of the competition, or AMD at 1.4 GHz. When the 2 GHz Pentium 4 is introduced, the gap It will also increase if AMD intends to present a 1.5 GHz version later this month. Intel intends to introduce new versions of Celeron within a few weeks. First the processor for low-cost machines will reach 1 GHz then, before the end of the year, to 1.2 GHz. We must remember that a debate on the "megahertz myth" has also been taking place in the PC world for some time. More and more sectors, the press, managers, mere consumers, are beginning to ask, data in hand, if this race at nominal speed makes sense and brings some benefits to consumers. Numerous bench tests show that Intel's newest processors, though 300 or even 400 MHz faster than AMD's, are unable to beat them in practical terms. Intel itself may soon be in trouble trying to justify how it is possible to have a processor, sold at a very high price, for professional machines and 800 MHz servers and processors for desktop and consumer 2 GHz machines, sold for a few lire.
