Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

As with the Celeron prices published earlier today, quantities are for 1,000s in trays. The boxed pricing for the channel (provided they are available), will differ. Here, below, the 100/133 designations after the processor speeds refer to the speed of the system or front side bus, while 256 or 512 refers to the amount of cache. These are prices for SECC2 (Slot 1) processors. Intel introduces its 866/133 processor on the 27th of February which will cost $776. The other launch on that date, the 850/100, will cost $765. The 800/133 and the 800/100, both with 256K will drop by 24 per cent to $647 on the 27th of February, while the 750/100 will drop by 29 per cent to $530. The 733/133 will fall by 23 per cent to $455, while the 700/100 will drop by 26 per cent to $417. The 666/133 will fall by 25 per cent to $337, while the 650/100 will fall by the same percentage to $316. The 600/133 with 256K will fall by 24 per cent to $241, and the 600/133 with 512K will also cost $241. The 550/100 with 256K and 512K of cache will both fall by 20 per cent to $193. On the 23rd of April, the 866/133 drops by four per cent to $744, the 850/100 to $733. The 800/133 will drop by 13 points to $562, while the 750/100 will fall by 14 points to $455. The biggest cut is on the 733/133, which falls by 26 per cent to $337. The 700/100 falls by 24 per cent to $316, the 666/133 to $251, and the 650/100 to $241. The 600/133/100 each fall to $193 -- a 20 per cent reduction. The 550 processors with both 256K and 512K cache stay unchanged at $193. On the 28th of May next, Intel will introduce its 933/133 Coppermine Pentium III, which will displace the 866/133 and be initially priced at $744. The 866/133 will drop by 24 per cent to $562, the 850/100 to $551, and the 800/133/100 to $385 -- a large drop of 31 per cent. The 750/100 will fall to $337 (26%), the 733/133 to $246 (27%), and the 700/100 to $241 (24%). The 666/133 will fall to $193 (23%) and the 650/100 will also be priced at $193 (20%), meaning the other members of the Pentium III family drop off the roadmap. These prices should be viewed in conjunction with both the Intel Celeron pricing and the Intel roadmap published earlier on today. Later, we will put the prices in context for those contemplating buying PCs over the next three months. ® See also Intel's Celeron pricing to June Intel's Y2K server, desktop, mobile roadmap
