The Register reports that Intel is predicting one of the steepest ramps in its history for the
Pentium 4, the new company flagchip due to be unleashed on
November 20th. This may simply be another aspect of the
company's marketing plan to focus attention on the new high price,
low availability one and away from the travails of the Pentium III, but
it might mean that Intel is getting its fabbing problems licked.
