Intel has today announced a series of price cuts across its Pentium III range, which may trigger a fall in the cost of buying a PC.
A spokeswoman for the chip giant said that new pricing on its standard Pentium III range would result in cuts of between seven per cent and 31 per cent.
The company is also cutting the prices of its Pentium III Xeon semiconductors for servers and workstations by between 14 per cent and 20 per cent.
Pricing on Intel's Celeron and Mobile Pentium III remains unchanged as the products were only recently launched, the spokeswoman said.
Intel rival AMD is expected to announce similar price cutting across its Athlon family of processors.
