AMD is set to take the whet stone to its price axe at the end of this month, and further embarrass chip giant Intel by attacking it in the business sector.

Sources close to AMD's plans in Taiwan said that the price cuts are likely to be in the order of 40 per cent, with the 1GHz microprocessor processor the particular target of the firm's desire.

Intel confirmed last week that it would introduce a 1.1GHz Coppermine Pentium III at the end of July in "limited quantities" but is not expected to significantly alter prices on its 1GHz PIIIs between now and September.

The bigger firm has conceded that supplies of its processors are currently tight, while some second tier vendors have revealed they have limited supplies of all speed grades of Intel chips until the third week of this month.

We will bring you precise details of the price cuts as soon as we get them. ®
