Intel will slash prices of its chips next Monday as it launches the Deschutes processor.
Advanced Logic Research (ALR) - now part of PC maker Gateway 2000 - will debut a two-way Deschutes system, meaning other, larger vendors will follow suit.
The new prices are as follows. The 200MHz processor will now cost $117, the 233MHz processor $183, the P2/133 will cost $255 and the P2/266 $357. The P2/300 will cost $505.
All prices are in units of 1,000 although the prices vary depending on whether or not you are a manufacturer or a distributor.
Intel refused to comment, before its Monday announcement.
No-one yet knows what Deschutes 333MHz parts will cost, apart from those who have pre-ordered through direct means.
