Future price reductions at Intel

Intel's last price reduction after the introduction of the 2.2 GHz Pentium 4 with Northwood core was less than two weeks ago, but the first information is already available about the chip giant's future price plans. The price of the top Pentium 4 models in particular will fall sharply.

The next slight price reduction for Pentium 4 processors will be in mid-April together with the presentation of the new Pentium 4, whose system bus runs at 133 MHz (Quad-Pumped 533 MHz) is raised. The new model will initially be available with 2.26 and 2.4 GHz. The following prices apply to orders of 1,000 pieces.

Price to orders of 1,000 pieces
Processor January 27th, mid-April, end of May Pentium 4 2.4 GHz - $ 562? Pentium 4 2.26 GHz - $ 508 $ 241 Pentium 4 2.2 GHz $ 562 $ 508 $ 241 Pentium 4 2A GHz $ 364 $ 284?

Even before the price of the top models is reduced, Intel will set new prices for the Celeron family in early March. The background to this price reduction, like the price reduction for the Pentium 4 processors, is the introduction of new models.

Price for the purchase of 1000 pieces
Processor January 27th at the beginning March Celeron 1.3 GHz $ 103 $ 99 Celeron 1.2 GHz $ 89 $ 84 Celeron 1.1 GHz $ 79 $ 74

The Celeron 1.4 GHz planned shortly after this price reduction, which incidentally is the last model in the Celeron series with Tutalatin - The core is said to cost 133 US dollars with the purchase of 1000 pieces.
