Paving the way for the introduction of higher performance Pentium III mobile chips in the near future, Intel slashed prices on its existing range at the weekend. The Pentium II/400 mobile, its .18 micron offering, fell by 32 per cent to $358, the 366MHz was reduced by 41 per cent to $187, and the 333MHz by 14 per cent to $161. There was no change to the price of the PII/333 mobile part, meaning the end of the road for that particular chip. The low voltage PII/255 fell by 15 per cent to $159. For Celeron mobiles, prices were also cut. The 400MHz fell by 43 per cent to $106, the 366 by 41 per cent to $85, the 333 by 30 per cent to $74, and the 300MHz by 13 per cent to $74. Intel will eventually phase out all of its existing Pentium II/mobile and Celeron/mobile chips, and replace them with models based on the Pentium III core. The company will further reduce prices on its Pentium III and Celeron desktop chips on the 12th of September, as reported here. ® All price cuts are when units are bought in 1000s. ®
