Cyrix has slashed prices on its two high-end MII processors today as a battle-royal begins between it, AMD and Intel. Prices on its MII-333MHz part drops to $80/1000 from $90/1000, and on its MII-300MHz processor to $59/1000 from $67/1000. Its other two processors, the MII-233 and the MII-266 remain stable at $48 and $55 respectively. The reason for the price cuts on the higher end parts is to compete with Intel's Pentium II family. Last week, Intel announced it was phasing out its PII/300 and PII/266MHz processors, even though there is a scarcity of low end Pentium IIs in the marketplace. A representative of AMD said she knew of no plans to drop its microprocessor prices. ®
