  1. Intel delivered a new chipset on schedule Monday but delayed a matching Pentium 4 processor at the last minute, leaving a raft of upcoming PCs without a processor, at least for a while. The chipmaker had planned to deliver both its new 875P chipset and a new 3GHz Pentium 4 processor, paving the way for a number of new desktop and workstation models from PC makers including Dell Computer, Hewlett-Packard and Gateway.

    The possibility of a problem with the 3GHz Pentium 4, discovered at the last minute, forced the company to delay the chip late Sunday. During tests, Intel found "anomalies" with the new chips and decided not to deliver any more of them to PC manufacturers.

    In my opinion its probably thermal issues, the 3Ghz P4 with the 533 FSB is already at 85W. This is getting to be a big problem now

    I was told the 3.2Ghz is over 100W !!!
    well seems like AIR COOLING is about to go obsolite
