Intel cut the price of its Celeron entry level processors yesterday, as preparation for the introduction of the 433MHz version.
Although Celeron 433MHz will officially be introduced on 28 February, an Intel representative said the processor would not be released until mid-March to allow the latest price changes to filter through the channel.
The Celeron 366MHz drops by 24 per cent to $93, the 400MHz to $133, the 333MHz to $73 and the 300A to $63. The prices apply to quantities of 1,000 and represent price cuts of 24 per cent, 16 per cent, 19 per cent and 11 per cent, respectively.
The Intel representative said: "The price moves are to make room for a 433MHz part." He would give no date for the introduction of a 466MHz Celeron but that is likely to be mid year.
