Intel plans significant price reductions

Intel plans significant price reductions

As already mentioned, on Friday, July 26th, 2002, AMD corrected the processor prices downwards in some cases significantly. A new roadmap from Intel shows plans for the next price reductions, some of which are more than significant.

According to the roadmap, the following processor prices can be expected in a month or so. As always, the prices apply to orders of 1000 pieces. Incidentally, this amount is usually not purchased by any shop. Rather, the small shops purchase Intel and AMD processors from intermediaries who, of course, want to cash in heavily. Just so much for that.

Processor prices for the purchase of 1000 pieces
Processor current price September 1st, end of 2002 3.06 GHz - - $ 637 * 2.8 GHz - $ 508 * $ 401 * (-21.0%) 2.66/2.6 GHz - $ 401 * $ 305 * (-23.9%) 2.53/2.50 GHz $ 637 $ 243 * (-61.8%)? 2.4 GHz $ 400 $ 193 (-51.8%)? 2.26/2.20 GHz $ 241 $ 193 (-20%)? 2.0 GHz $ 193 $ 163 (-15.5%)? 1.9 GHz $ 173 $ 163 (-5.8%)? 1.8 GHz $ 163 $ 143 (-12.3%)? * Price applies to the launch of the new processor. The launch date is still unknown

As you can see more than clearly from the new prices, Intel wants the current top model with 2.53 GHz into a completely new price range. The price of the Pentium 4 with 2.4 GHz will also drop dramatically in order to become more attractive for customers. Looking at these prices, AMD will find it more than difficult to keep up with these giants. But one should not forget: firstly, it turns out differently and secondly than you think. At least if the Hammer does what it promises.
