Sources close to Intel confirmed today that a 433MHz Celeron is likely to be released before the end of February.
The date set is 28 February, so precipitating the usual round of price cuts as less speedier chips are phased out. It will be swiftly followed by a 466MHz, although other sources said this was unlikely to appear before early April.
Intel would not comment on prices, but US reports have estimated that the 400MHz will cost $130/1000, the 366MHz $90/1000 and the 333MHz $70/1000.
Interestingly, while Intel still insists it is keeping Slot One Celerons, sources said that they were likely to be priced higher than the new 370-Socket PPGA package.
The price moves and early introductions are designed to keep both AMD and Cyrix away from the low end patch.
