On April 11th, Intel is set to make further price cuts in its PII product line up by around 10 per cent. Although no chips are expected to disappear on that day, sources close to Intel's plans confirmed that the cuts are being made as a way of introducing the 550MHz part at the end of May. But another source told The Register that distributors will sell a two pack boxed Pentium II/400MHz with 512K cache for $302.55 on April 4. This latter one puzzles us. If it is true, it means that each chip costs $150.28 and that doesn't seem to fit into any of our information, whatever. ® Intel Developer Forum coverage
