The pesky OEMs who for some treason don’t think Intel is all heart, tell us that there are huge PII prices coming early, rather than later in January next year. According to our source, Intel was going to slash prices towards the end of January but has now brought its cunning plans forward. Indeed, as we went to press, we were told by one of the pesky ones that Intel will cut the price of its 233MHz Pentium II on the 27th or 28th of December - crafty, eh? Great Stan’s spin doctor says that the company is unable to give any information about future price cuts. Meanwhile, the truth will out about Intel’s plans for the MMX platform. Aside from the death of ceramic MMX chips in 1998, Intel’s extensions will, the same source suggested, now be included in its Katmai family, as revealed here earlier. This will be the famous Pentium III platform, with samples going out to the favoured news towards the end of 1998. ® A year on, Santa Clara is still not Santa Claus…
