Intel cuts prices

Intel cuts prices

Just in time for October 29th, Intel has lowered the prices for desktop, mobile and workstation CPUs. Especially the price reductions for higher clocked CPUs are quite strong at up to 32% and shows the pressure Intel is under after the introduction of the new Athlons.

And as if that wasn't enough, rumors are already circulating another price cut at the end of January, which, however, has not been confirmed by Intel and should therefore be treated with great caution. The following prices apply to the purchase of 1000 pieces:

Processor 11/15/2000 11/29/2000 01/29/2001 Pentium III 1GHz $ 669 $ 465 (31%) $ 422 (10%) Pentium III 933MHz $ 508 $ 348 ( 32%) $ 241 (31%) Pentium III 866MHz $ 358 $ 241 (33%) $ 193 (20%) Pentium III 850MHz $ 348 $ 241 (31%) $ 193 (20%) Pentium III 800MHz $ 251 $ 193 (23%) $ 183 (5%) Pentium III 750MHz $ 241 $ 193 (20%) $ 183 (5%) Pentium III 733MHz $ 193 $ 183 (5%) $ 163 (11%) Pentium III 700MHz $ 193 $ 183 (5%) $ 163 (11%) Pentium III 667MHz $ 163 $ 163 (0%) ) $ 143 (12%) Pentium III 650MHz $ 163 $ 163 (0%) $ 143 (12%) Pentium III 600MHz $ 143 $ 143 (0%) - Celeron 800MHz - - $ 170 (new) Celeron 766MHz - $ 170 (new) $ 138 (19%) Celeron 733MHz - $ 112 (new) $ 106 (5%) Celero n 700MHz $ 138 $ 88 (36%) $ 83 (5%) Celeron 667MHz $ 112 $ 83 (26%) $ 79 (5%) Celeron 633MHz $ 93 $ 79 (15%) $ 73 (8%) Celeron 600MHz $ 79 $ 73 (8%) - Celeron 566MHz $ 69 $ 69 (0%) -

As you can see, there is a clear systematic in the price reduction. The new prices are passed through from the bottom up. If an Intel Celeron 700MHz, for example, still cost 193 US dollars at the beginning of October, you getnow a Celeron with a clock rate of 750MHz for the same price.
