Intel prunes prices

Up to 34 per cent off selected CPUs

Intel this week chopped up to 34.1 per cent off selected processors, following last week's Xeon DP refresh and the launch this week of 64-bit Pentium 4 processors for desktop PCs.

The price cuts centred on the chip maker's desktop Celeron line-up, across both the 90nm Celeron D range and the older 130nm parts. Prices here fell by up to 13.6 per cent.

The arrival of the 2MB-cache Xeon DP saw Intel push down the prices of the older 1MB-cache version by up to 34.1 per cent. It also trimmed 21.6 per cent off the price of the 1MB-cache 64-bit 3.2GHz Pentium 4 for servers and workstations. ®
