Pentium III 700 Mhz

Well, it looks like Intel has felt the heat from the new AMD Athlon and is soon coming out with the PIII 700. Check out Intel’s site here. On another note, I wonder if Intel is ever going to come out with some RISC processors (this also means Microsoft would have to write Windows code for the different chip architecture). Apple did it about five years ago when they switched to the Power PC architecture which eventually spawned into the G3 and now the G4 (which BTW are a lot better at number crunching than the Pentium class because they do it at either 64 or 128 bits instead of 32).
