A one-megahertz clock (1 MHz) means some number of bits (16, 32, 64, etc.  .25 micron Pentium III The successor to the Pentium II from Intel. Introduced in the spring of 1999 at 500 MHz, the Pentium III architecture was similar to the Pentium II with the addition of 70 new instructions optimized for multimedia (see SSE).  and 500MHz Celeron processors should be announced. It cut prices on current 550MHz Pentium IIIs on July 19 in preperation for the launch (CI No 3,705). Originally, Intel had planned to produce 600MHz Pentium IIIs using .18 micron technology Micron Technology ("Micron") NYSE: MU is a multinational company based in Boise, Idaho, USA, best known for producing many forms of semiconductor devices. This includes DRAM, SDRAM, flash memory, and CMOS image sensing chips. , but that chip - codenamed Coppermine - has now been delayed until some time in November. OEMs are likely to be immediately ready with new desktop machines using the processors, and IBM (International Business Machines Corporation, Armonk, NY, www.ibm.com) The world's largest computer company. IBM's product lines include the S/390 mainframes (zSeries), AS/400 midrange business systems (iSeries), RS/6000 workstations and servers (pSeries), Intel-based servers (xSeries)  Corp is promising a new program to help customers decide whether or not to upgrade.
