I do not think Intel will bring out a P-pro w/mmx. They are planning to release their next chip, Klamath, mid-97, it has some features of the P-pro and incoporates MMX. I hear that they're going to a new type of "connector" called a SEC, and I don't think it will fit in your motherboard. PC Magazine has had articles about Chip trends in their last two issues, check out theri site, or check out intel's site.

Intel is working on a Pentium Pro MMX indeed.  The processor's
ID will be Klamath or as you probably heard - P6.
This is a good reason to wait for any upgrade if you have a Pentium now because Pentium (with or without MMX) prices will go down and the same for the Pentium Pros (without MMX).
Next, they will release Deuchetes, or Pentium Pro MMX 2 which
will incorporate some cache improvements and expect to see the P7, or the Mercedes chip in mid '98.
Yes, it will support NT 4.  No, it will need a different motherboard as the only MMX enabled motherboards currently available support up to 200 MMX Pentium.  Pentium Pros motherboards currently do not support MMX.
Infact, the P6 has been finalized and is ready and working (I live in Israel where believe it or not, the whole design and concept of the Pentium and MMX was made - the MMX is an Israeli idea evolved in Haifa, did you know ? - it was conceived in 1993) but Intel is probably sustaining its release to get rid of old stocks and not to cause a boom in prices (guess which way) so I would suggest to hold your breath and wait.
