The essential guide to IT transformation

Sources close to Intel's plans have now provided us with details of the price adjustments the company will make on its Pentium IIIs on the 12th of December. And it's clearly a fine tuning exercise, as we already suspected, in preparation for the big bang that will happen on the 23rd of January 2000. Many prices on Pentium III parts will remain unchanged. There will be no reduction, for example, on the PIII-500 chip. However, Intel will reduce prices on its top of the range Pentium III 733MHz chip, with a minor reduction of $12. The Pentium III 600MHz chip will fall in price by $10, as will the PIII 500E. Distributors, meanwhile, are reporting tough supply constraints on Celeron 433MHz and Celeron 400MHz, with system builders rapidly depleting stocks of the popular parts. As reported here earlier, Intel will intro 750MHz Pentium IIIs but using a 100MHz front side bus (FSB) in January of next year. ®
