Intel is cutting prices on Pentium 4 as well as selected Pentium III and Celeron parts next Sunday (December 10).

Chipzilla says the move, predicted by The Reg last week, is aimed at enabling more mainstream system price points below $1999. The 1.5Ghz P4 is cut by nine per cent, while the 1.4Ghz part goes down by 19 per cent. Both P4s come bundled with 128Mb of RDRAM. The reduction means a 1.5Ghz P4 will cost around $745, while the 1.4GHz part will be tagged at around $520 in 1Ku quantities.

Pentium III processors at 750Mhz will be reduced by 10 per cent, while the 733, 700, and 667MHz, along with the Celeron 766MHz part, are chopped by six per cent.

Intel says this is 'in order to continue to offer competitively priced value processors.' These processors will be available at the new prices only while supplies last.

Dealers should expect to see similar percentage declines in boxed processor prices from disties. ®
