On Monday the Intel P4 becomes commercially available

On Monday the Intel P4 becomes commercially available in systems from three vendors. The prices were supposed to be secret but they've been leaked. Wait until you see them. They can't be serious; do they actually think they're going to sell even one of these things, let alone large numbers of them, at those kinds of prices?

Athlon + DDR:

Athlon + DDR: Bert McComas is a very highly respected analyst of the CPU and memory industry, and I always read his articles with great interest.

Intel has announced that they don't expect the P4 to be a significant part of their business until late 2001. According to McComas, if they don't change that plan, AMD is going to eat them for lunch, because the P3 is no longer competitive. The performance/price ratio for the new AMD stuff has to be seen to be believed. I think Intel is in major trouble, because informal reports are that a 1.5GHz P4 is about the same power as a 900 MHz P3.[more>

Intel has a terrible quarter.

Intel has a terrible quarter. Is the PC industry in the toilet, or is it just Intel executing badly?

It's just Intel executing badly. (Reports of the demise of the PC industry are greatly exaggerated.) AMD has another great quarter and appears to be stealing Intel market share.

US Energy Department page a ripoff from Intel.com?

US Energy Department page a ripoff from Intel.com? I was just reading about the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve and while I was reading the page I had the strange feeling that the template was copied from another site. So is this some kind of generic template or was it an original Intel production?

Intel botches one bigtime.

Intel botches one bigtime. They recalled their 1.133 GHz P3 the very same day that AMD started volume shipment of the 1.10 GHz Athlon. (More inside)

Suddenly a great deal of idiocy is explained.

Suddenly a great deal of idiocy is explained. This one goes down in my book as the single biggest blunder in corporate history in the last ten years.

Who the hell at Intel was stupid enough to sign this damned thing?

Israel to make 1.7Ghz Pentium

Israel to make 1.7Ghz Pentium Intel ordered it's plant in Israel to drop everything and produce 5,000 Pentium 4 wafers, each containing 200 Pentium 4's. Each chip will be rated at 1.7Ghz, a good .7Ghz from AMD's 1Ghz chip.

Intel nixes iMacs at Harvard exhibit.

Intel nixes iMacs at Harvard exhibit. Obviously, this inspires irrational umbrage in my Mac-lovin' heart, even though I would no doubt have a completely opposite "let's stick it to the man" attitude if Apple did something like this to Intel. [via macintouch]

Intel royally fucks over one of its best customers.

Intel royally fucks over one of its best customers. We don't ordinarily get into hardware here, but what's important about this is that this has a damned good chance of putting ASUS out of business. (And just two weeks after I put an ASUS mobo into my computer, sob. Fortunately, mine is not one of the ones involved.)

If Intel has any honor (or wants to maintain any kind of reputation) they're going to completely cover ASUS's losses on this, which could easily top a billion dollars. I wonder if they will.

Anyone want to lay odds on when the first lawsuit gets filed? (Or who will sue whom?)

From the utterly useless news file: Win an authentic Intel Bunny jumpsuit, just like the ones in the old pentium commercials. I could just imagine what a Mac or Linux user would do with this suit if they won it...

Hubble Upgraded to 486

Speaking of retrotech, the latest group of space shuttle jockies just upgraded the Hubble to a rockin' Intel 486 chip, replacing the apparently inadequate 386 that previously provided the brains to the wobbly eye in the sky.
