Ifølge The Register ser vi næste version af Pentium III, kodenavn "Tualatin", i 1. kvartal i det snart kommende år. Intel vil fremstille versioner op til 1,26 GHz af denne Pentium III processor, og samtidig ryger clockfrekvensen på Celeron op til 900 MHz i løbet af det kvartal. Chipsettet 815B, som understøtter Pentium III "Tualatin" er mærkeligt nok først klar i 2. kvartal år 2001. Pentium 4 når clockfrekvenser over 2 GHz i fjerde kvartal år 2001, mens "Brookdale" chipsettet, som skulle gøre det muligt at benytte DDR-SDRAM til Pentium 4 først er klar i starten af år 2002.
The latest roadmap Intel has showed its customers reveals that it will take the axe to prices of its 1.4 and 1.5 Pentium 4s on the 28th of January 2001.

At the same time it will release the 1.3GHz Pentium 4 at a price of $409, and cut the price of its 1GHz Pentium III from $465 to $348.

The 1.5 P4 will cost $644, and the 1.4 Pentium 4 will cost $440. On the 10th of December, the 1.4GHz Pentium 4 dropped to $574, as reported here.

Tualatin-256s at over 1.26GHz and Celerons at over 900MHz will arrive in Q1 of next year, while Intel is preparing the ground for its Northwood launch by offering Willamette (P4) frequency parity between the 478 and the 423 pin packaging now in Q3, in preparation for a launch at over 2GHz in Q4 next year.

This is slower than many expected. The Tualatin cache size for desktops has changed to 256K. Brookdale DDR support is now expected in Q1 of 2002, while in Q2 of next year Intel will intro an 815B-Step chipset to allow Tualatin support. SDRAM support for Brookdale is predicted to arrive in Q3 next year.
