Intel is informing customers that it will miss its year-end target for
delivering a high-speed chip for desktop computers, another in a string of
delays reported by the world’s largest chip maker. Intel now expects to ship a
Pentium 4 chip running at four gigahertz, or four billion cycles per second, in
the first quarter. Intel declined to give a reason for the delay, other than to
say that Intel wanted to be able to provide adequate volumes of the product to
customers. The latest delay with Pentium 4 came as part of a broader update on
the company’s product plans sent this week to customers.
