The 450MHz flavour of the Pentium III is set to be phased out in two weeks time, reliable sources said today.
That probably sets a record for the quickest movement of any Intel processor from inception, a matter of months rather than years.
It also indicates - quite clearly - that despite advice from senior chip analysts, Intel will play the price card in a bid to upset AMD's Athlon applecart.
This week, Intel further cut the prices of its low end Celeron processors.
The company notified its dealer base earlier this week of the decline in pricing.
The percentage decline per 1,000 since 6 June is 22 per cent for the 466MHz Celeron, 18 per cent for the 433MHz Celeron, 18 per cent for the 400MHz part with SEPP packaging and 22 per cent for the 400MHz part with plastic packaging.
