Top three mobile application threats

As anticipated, and as sure as eggs is eggs and and as yesterday was a choccie chomping Bank Holiday in the UK, Intel duly made some price adjustments on a number of its Pentium III, Pentium III Xeon and Celerons. The last time Intel made similar cuts was on 26 March. Intel, which described the moves as part of its typical pricing activities, reduced prices by between four and 38 per cent, depending on the platform. All the reductions are on .18 micron processors, apart for one item, the 500MHz .25 micron Celeron. All prices are for quantities of 1000. The Xeon first. The 866/256K fell by four per cent to $794; the 800MHz to $612 (12 per cent), and the 733MHz now costs $425, a 16 per cent drop. Intel's price for its 1GHz Coppermine remains at $990. Other Slot One Pentium III Coppermines fell as follows. The 866MHz CuMine dropped four per cent to $744; the 850MHz to $733 (four per cent); the 800MHz to $562 (13 per cent); the 750MHz to $455 (14 per cent); the 733MHz too $337 (26 per cent); the 700MHz to $316 (24 per cent); the 666MHz to $251 (26 per cent); the 650MHz to $241 (24 per cent) and the 600MHz to $194 (20 per cent). Celeron price drops were as follows. The 600MHz fell to $138 (24 per cent); the 566MHz fell to $103 (38 per cent); the 533MHz to $93 (27 per cent) and the 500MHz .25 micron Celeron to $73, a drop of 22 per cent. Intel also revved up its mobile notebook line yesterday by introducing a SpeedStep 700MHz notebook chip, and a 550MHz Celeron notebook CPU, both of which, it said, are available in volume. These are $562 and $170 respectively, when bought in OEM quantities. Meanwhile, a UK PC manufacturer confirmed a dearth of Athlon microprocessors, as reported here, but said that quantities above 800MHz were still available in quantity. ® See Also Intel to adjust prices on 23 April, confirms Q3 availability
