Intel has been forced to recall its fastest Pentium processor because of problems while under software testing.

The 1.13GHz Pentium III processor showed problems related to overheating in software benchmarking tests by Intel and independent software analysts. A Linux operating system kernel was one of the software tests affected.

"We have been working hard with hardware manufacturers to recover parts that may have been shipped to end-users with some problems," an Intel spokeswoman said. "The product does not meet our own standards of high quality."

Intel would not say how many of its products were affected. It said that since the processor had only become available a month ago, there would be a very limited effect on end-users.
