Internet Security Threat Report 2014

As predicted in The Register last week, Chipzilla has today remarked the price tags on most of its desktop CPUs. The flagship PIII 500MHz has only been around for six weeks but that hasn’t stopped $60 being lopped off the price – in 1,000 unit terms it drops from $696 to $637. Its baby brother PIII 450MHz plummets from $496 to $411. Meanwhile, the venerable Pentium IIs are now a snip – the 450MHz is down from $476 to $396, the 400 moves from $284 to $234 and the 350MHz reductions are slowing – a stingy $7 drop from $170 to $163 points to the fact that this particular part is not long for this world. The smart money would be on a funeral around June or July. Meanwhile the Celeron range also continues the downward trend. The entry-level 333MHz and 366MHz parts have now bottomed out at $67 and $73 respectively. The 400MHz drops $20 to $103, the 433MHz is now $143 from $169, making room at the top for the new 466MHz Celeron, due any day now at an expected price of around $170. Mobile prices have taken a dive of around 40 per cent too, but we’re still waiting for Intel to fill in the details… ®
