Intel has cut the price on most of its desktop CPUs.
The flagship PIII 500MHz has only been around for six weeks but that hasn't stopped $60 being lopped off the price - in 1,000 unit terms it drops from $696 to $637.
Its baby brother PIII 450MHz plummets from $496 to $411. Meanwhile, the venerable Pentium IIs are now a snip - the 450MHz is down from $476 to $396, the 400 moves from $284 to $234 and the 350MHz reductions are slowing - a stingy $7 drop from $170 to $163 points to the fact that this particular part is not long for this world. The smart money would be on a funeral around June or July.
Meanwhile the Celeron range also continues the downward trend. The entry-level 333MHz and 366MHz parts have now bottomed out at $67 and $73 respectively. The 400MHz drops $20 to $103, the 433MHz is now $143 from $169, making room at the top for the new 466MHz Celeron, due any day now at an expected price of around $170.
