Intel Introduces Pentium® III Processor At 933 Mhz



AUCKLAND, May 25, 2000 – Intel New Zealand today introduced the Intel® Pentium® III processor at 933 MHz. This new processor delivers high performance and is available in high volumes today in systems from a wide variety of personal computer manufacturers.

The Pentium III processor at 933 MHz is designed to power advanced desktop software for home and business, including entry-level workstation applications. In addition to being available today in systems from several major PC manufacturers, the Pentium III processors will also be available in single unit boxed versions from Intel product dealers and resellers.

"The Intel Pentium III processor at 933 MHz delivers awesome performance and enables powerful personal computers that can run demanding multimedia, content creation, and Internet applications," said Scott Gilmour, General Manager, Intel New Zealand. "In dual processing configurations, computer users can have fast Windows 2000* or Linux* multiprocessing systems for creating content, performing financial analysis, or even playing games."

High Performance Features
Last October, Intel introduced Pentium III processors featuring an integrated, high-performance Level 2 cache subsystem that runs at the full speed of the processor core. This feature, called the Advanced Transfer Cache, enables application performance to scale with increasing clock frequencies. This technology is key to the outstanding performance of the

Pentium III processor at 933 MHz. Most other processors on the market today are based on technologies that keep the cache memory from operating at full frequencies, limiting the PC's full ability to deliver performance to the user.

Pricing and Availability
The Pentium III processor at 933 MHz is available now in SECC2 and FC-PGA packaging and is priced at US$744 in 1,000-unit quantities. The Pentium III processor at 933 MHz provides a CPUmark99* score of 81.8, a SPECint2000* score of 394, and a SPECfp2000* of US$276.** The Intel Pentium III Xeon™ at 933 MHz is also available in SC330 packaging at US$794 in 1,000-unit quantities.

Intel, the world's largest chip maker, is also a leading manufacturer of computer, networking and communications products. Additional information about Intel is available at
