The essential guide to IT transformation

As a prelude to its announcements of SpeedStep (nee Geyserville) mobile technology tomorrow, Intel has taken drastic action and reduced prices on its range of mobile Pentium III Coppermine and Celeron notebook chips. We will preview the SpeedStep-Geyserville technology announcements here later on today, but in the meantime here are the details of the price cuts, which came into effect first thing this morning. The Pentium III Coppermine (.18 micron process) mobile in BGA2 packaging was $530 and is now $245, a 54 per cent reduction. The 450 MHz (.18) mobile was $348 and is now $187, a 46 per cent reduction. The 400 MHz LV unit at .18 micron process technology was $348 and is now $187, once again a 46 per cent reduction. The 400 MHz (.18) unit in BGA 2 packaging was $358 and is now $198, a 45 per cent reduction. On the Celeron front, in BGA 1 packaging, the 466 MHz (.25) mobile was $209 and is now $96, a 54 per cent reduction The 433 MHz (.25) was $159 and is now $75, a 53 per cent reduction. The 400 MHz (.25) was $106 but is now $70, a 34 per cent reduction, while the 366 MHz (.25) stays at $85, meaning this is now effectively a defunct chip. All prices are for units bought in quantities of 1,000. ® See also Geyserville due Tuesday
