Intel will slash chip prices by up to 42 per cent next week, according to CNET sources, confirming what our own deep throats told us back in December.

On Sunday, 28 January, Chipzilla will chomp 21 per cent off the price of the 1.5GHz Pentium 4, which will drop from $819 to $644 in palettes of 1000 chips. The 1.4GHz P4 will fall from $575 to $440, a cut of 23 per cent, as predicted here.

And Monday will see the 1GHz PIII priced at $268, down 42 per cent from today's price, $465. That's actually lower that we expected - we'd been given a target price of $348, a 25 per cent reduction.

The 933MHz PIII's price will fall 30 per cent to $241, from $348. Celeron prices will come down too, with the 766MHz falling 34 per cent to $112, from $170, and the 733MHz falling 21 per cent, from $112 to $88.

And there's more. Mobile PIII prices will come down, paving the way for the introduction of a 900MHz part at $722. The 850, 800 and 750MHz versions will drop to $508, 432 and 268, respectively, representing cuts of between 30 and 33 per cent.

The Mobile Celery line, which currently stands at 600, 650 and 700MHz, will fall to $75, $96 and $123, respectively. Again, that paves the way for the introduction of higher clock speed parts - 800-900MHz - though these aren't now expected until Q3. ®
