Intel updates price list

Chip tariff catches up with recent launches

Intel updated its microprocessor menu yesterday, adding a number of juicy new items to its bill of fare.

Actually, 'new' might be stretching the point a little. Essentially, all the products added to the price-list are parts put on sale since Intel last updated the document, back in October.

So now we see the 775-pin 3.46GHz Pentium 4 Extreme Edition with its 1066MHz frontside bus, pricing at a less-than-compelling $999, the same as the 3.4GHz/800MHz FSB version. And there's the Pentium 4 570J with its 1MB L2 cache, 3.8GHz clock frequency and Execute Disable Bit (EDB) support. It's priced at $637.

The new Celeron 345J also supports the EDB, though it's also available as the EDB-less Celeron 345. Both run at 3.06GHz over a 533MHz FSB and contain 256KB of L2. Both cost $127.

For notebooks, Intel has added the Pentium M 765, clocked to 2.1GHz and running a 400MHz FSB but with 2MB of L2. Available on its own for $637, it can be bought in a number of Centrino bundles from $695 to $702, depending on whether you select the 855GM or 855PM chipset, or pick the 2200BG or 2195ABG ProWireless mini PCI Wi-Fi adaptor.

Indeed, Intel has updated the entire Centrino price list to add bundles incorporating the new tri-mode 2915ABG.

'Madison 9M', the Itanium 2 with 9MB of L3 cache, also makes an entry onto the price-list, at $4227, as does the $1980 6MB version. Both are clocked at 1.6GHz and run a 400MHz FSB, as does the new, $910 1.5GHz part with 4MB of L3 and the 1.3GHz, 3MB L3 chip, at $530. For a 533MHz FSB, look to the 1.6GHz, 3MB L3 part at $1172.

The solitary addition to the Xeon line is a 2.8GHz, 90nm, low-voltage model at $259.

Finally, Intel has appended the list with the 64-bit enabled 3.8GHz F-class 90nm Pentium 4 for servers and workstations, priced at $637. ®
