We just reported our latest bad experiences with Intel's recently released high-end processor. While I asked Intel to consider the retraction of their Pentium III 1.13 GHz processors once more, I couldn't know how close Intel was to actually do exactly that. Read the full scoop on the situation.
AMD had Intel on the run with the Athlon. There was a race to 1GHz, then there was a 1100 Athlon and then a Pentium III 1133 appeared. But it was unstable and they all had to be recalled. Intel is rarely behind but when it does happen they tend to get desperate and the knee jerk reaction seems to be to pump up the clocks. The Pentium III 1133 and then later the fire breathing Prescott Pentium 4's.
The upcoming Comet Lake parts are supposed to go to 5.3GHz with over 300W right? Kind of makes you wonder.
