Intelligent flash storage arrays

Cyrix has slashed the price of its processors in a further bid to weaken Intel's hold on the processor market. The company said today that the price of its new part, the MII-333, will be $135/1000, while the MII-300 will drop to $75/1000. The 6x86MX will now cost $45 in quantities of 1000, while the PR266 will now cost $72. National Semiconductor (Cyrix) said that the changes take place from today and the 333 part is now shipping in quantity. Sukh Rayat, general manager of Flashpoint, a non-Intel distributor, said that if his dealer base did not want Intel, their next branded choice was AMD. However, if they did not care about brands, they chose either IDT parts or Cyrix parts. ®
