Build a business case: developing custom apps

As revealed here earlier this week, Intel will cut desktop prices of its Pentium IIIs and Celerons in the run up to the introduction of the 533B and the 600B, which support a 133MHz FSB, on 27th of September. (Story: Intel 533B and 600B parts the reason for 12 September price cuts) We now have those price details, detailed below. Intel cut prices on several of these parts only one month ago, indicating an aggressive ramp up in the face of AMD competition. These prices are for boxed parts and include heatsinks and fans. The Celeron 400 drops by $8 to $70, the 433MHz by $13 to $85, the Celeron 466MHz by $13 to $105, and the Celeron 500MHz by $13 to $160. The Pentium III/450 and the Pentium III/500 prices remain at $185, and $254 respectively. Meanwhile, the Pentium III/550 drops by $60 to $410, while the Pentium III/600 drops by $50 to $610. The new Pentium III/533B will be introduced at $380, while the Pentium III/600B will cost $660. ®
