Intel is stepping up the pace in the consumer market with the introduction of its fastest multimedia chip to date.
More than 30 computer vendors have already placed orders for the 233MHz MMX chip, but analysts say that there will be little demand from corporate users.
In 1,000 unit quantities, the 233MHz Pentium costs almost as much as the 233MHz Pentium II, which is priced at $636 in OEM quantities.
Intel is due to make its next round of price cuts in August. Many obsrvers expect the company to make deeper than usual cuts, to combat faster and cheaper chips from AMD and Cyrix.
