Boxed motherboards from Intel are hard to get, we know, but the ones system builders can get will be reduced in price from 23 April. That will go some way towards fighting smaller competitor AMD, which is to take an axe to its prices next Monday, as reported here earlier. Earlier this month, Intel told its system builders that it will reduce prices on "select" boxed Pentium IIIs, some boxed Celeron processors, and Pentium III Xeon chips sold through its authorised distributor channel. Yesterday, Cnet reported that because of supply problems, Intel would delay its 633MHz and 666MHz Celerons for two months. At the same time Intel told its system builders about the boxed processor price cuts, it also delivered a matrix for availability of the CPUs which must make depressing reading for dealers that have Intel-only customers. The PIII 1.0B-GHz, which will come in both SECC2 and FC-PGA (flip chip) packaging, will not arrive until Q3 this year. It will be validated for the i840, i820 and i810e chipset. There then follows a long list of other boxed microprocessors and general box availability is also listed for Q3. These include the PIII 1GHz (different from the PIII 1.0B GHz, apparently, but what is the difference?), the PIII 933, the PIII 866, the PIII 850, the PIII 800, the PIII 750, the PIII 733 -- oh, the list goes on and on. The boxed Intel muvvaboards™ Intel supplies as of 10 April are the VC820, the CC820, the CA810E, the OR840, the SE440BX-2, the SR440BX, the RC440BX, the N440BX, the T440BX, and the L440GX+. Later, we will publish more details from the matrix we saw, as well as how some other interesting snippets. ® Related Stories AMD takes axe to Athlon prices Intel confirms major chip shortages Disaster hits Intel Coppermine supplies Intel CuMine supply problems a twisted, complex tale
