Internet Security Threat Report 2014

We now have details of the changes in prices of Intel's .18 Coppermine processors, which the company notified to its PC vendors and channel partners late yesterday, and which we predicted many weeks ago. As we thought, the price adjustments are not massive, and that's because Intel is holding its horses for a mammoth cut in January next year. The list does not include packages using the flip chip Socket 370 configuration, but our Intel representative is attempting to clarify the position on these parts, and we will update the story when we receive further information. All prices following are when processors are bought in batches of 1000. On the Pentium III-Xeon chips, the 733MHz part now costs $804, a three per cent reduction, the 667MHz $633, also a three per cent reduction, and the 600MHz Pentium III Xeon $494, a two per cent reduction. For Pentium III Slot 1 chips, the percentage reductions are similar, save on the 533MHz parts (notice the change between .25 and .18 micron). The 733MHz (.18) now costs $754 (3%), the 700MHz (.18) costs $733 (3%), the 667MHz(.18) $583 (4%), the 650MHz (.18) $562 (4%), the 600MHz (.18) $444 (2%). There are seven per cent reductions on the 533MHz Pentium III desktop in both .25 micron and .18 micron, with the former now costing $294, and the latter $284. This indicates that Intel has successfully moved its process from .25 micron to .18 micron on this particular part. In the next months, we confidently predict it will do the same for other members of its so-far trouble dogged Coppermine family. ®
