Intel slashes Celeron prices – again

AMD will be hurt -- again

Intel cut the price of its Celeron entry-level processors yesterday, as preparation for the introduction of its 433MHz part. But although the date of the introduction of the Celeron 433MHz remains 28 February, an Intel representative said that it would now be released in mid-March to allow the latest price changes to filter through the channels. The Celeron 366MHz drops by 24 per cent to $93, the 400MHz to $133, the 333MHz to $73 and the 300A to $63. These prices are all when bought in quantities of 1000 and represent 24 per cent, 16 per cent, 19 per cent and 11 per cent drops respectively. The Intel representative said: "The price moves are to make room for a 433MHz part." He would give no date for the introduction of a 466MHz Celeron but that is likely to be mid-year. ® See also Analysis: AMD caught by Intel's devilish pricing
