Intel cut the prices of its laptop computer chips by as much as 43 per cent on Tuesday in anticipation of introducing the Pentium III for mobile computers later this year.
In its first such price cut since 13 June, the chip giant slashed 32 per cent off its fastest mobile offering, the 400Mhz Pentium II, bringing the price to $358. The 366Mhz version dropped 41 per cent to $187 and the 400Mhz Celeron fell by 43 per cent to $106 when sold in batches of 1,000.
Intel plans to introduce the Pentium III processor for laptops running at speeds of 500Mhz later this year, but expects to ship 600Mhz versions by the first quarter of 2000, followed by 700Mhz versions later in the first half of the year.
