Same old song but with a different beat

Only one month after it changed prices on its low-end Celeron processors, Intel last night made further price cuts on the family. The prices, which are for its .25 micron Celeron product line, are for units in prices of 1000, and show that the 533MHz Celeron it introduced earlier on in the month, is now the highest priced part. But at $167, it also demonstrates that Intel will shortly supersede its .25 micron Celeron family with the newer, Coppermine processors, which use .18 micron technology. The $167 figure is the so-called "sweet spot" for Celerons Over the course of the last nine months, as Intel introduced faster versions of the low-end part, lower processor speeds have just shuffled quietly off its price list. The last price cuts Intel made on the Celerons was on the 12th of December, shown below in brackets. The new 533MHz Celeron is $167, the 500MHz chip is $143 ($128), the 466MHz unit is $94 ($89) and the 433MHz Celeron $73 ($69). The next price cuts we can expect to see from Intel are, according to our information, on the 23rd of January next and on its desktop Pentium III processor range. During Q1 of this year, Intel is widely expected to introduce its Coppermine Celeron III family. The 533MHz Celeron is likely to be one of the last of the products that uses the .25 micron core. AMD will also cut prices on its Athlon family on that date, as revealed here earlier. ®
