Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Distributors close to Intel's plans have passed us details of price cuts the company will make on April 11 next. There will be "sizeable" cuts in mobile Pentium IIs and Celerons, but the exact prices have not yet been finalised, the source said. The PII/333 will disappear as an Intel part on that date, while other Pentium IIs will drop by around $70 or so each. The Pentium III/450 will drop to just below $400/1000, while the Pentium III/500 will cost $635/1000. When it is released in June, the Pentium III/550 is likely to cost $750, the distributor said. As reported here last week, Intel introduced its 433MHz Celeron yesterday. But more significantly, Slot One Celerons will disappear by mid-year, according to our source. ®
