Chip giant Intel has notified its distributors and dealers, sorry resellers, that they can expect to see product introductions as well as a set of price cuts on processors aimed at the notebook market. But the price cuts will not be across the range, Intel has warned. The changes will come on March 26th, and follow the inability of Intel to provide as many of its boxed notebook chips as it wanted to. Large OEMs, rather than distributors and system builders, were the first to benefit from the introduction of a range of Coppermine notebook microprocessors. In a confidential note to its system builders, Intel said: "Boxed Mobile Processor Pricing Update - March 26, 2000. This is a notice to inform you of an upcoming price move on Intel's boxed mobile processors. On March 26, 2000, Intel will be reducing prices on select boxed mobile Pentium® III processors sold through authorized distributors. "With this price move, Intel is delivering higher performance and better value in the performance mobile market segment. We will have more information available the week of the price move. Please contact your authorized Intel distributor, after March 26, for specific pricing and availability details." We will attempt to get these prices for you ahead of the due system builder date. ®
