Pentium Pro: 233 Mhz in May; 300 Mhz next year

Intel will ship a 233 Mhz "Klamath" Pentium Pro MMX processor with 512K cache and a surprisingly low price, starting in February. In May, an error-correcting-code version will ship for basically the same price. Intel is expected to ship a 266 Mhz version late this year and a 300 Mhz version, code-named "Deschutes", in 1998. Prices for existing Pentium Pro models, which ship in 200 and 180 Mhz versions and 256K of cache, are expected to drop slightly as the new chips are introduced
