Intel yesterday cut the prices of selected Pentium III processors, undoubtedly in preparation for the coming official launch of the mobile and desktop versions of its 0.13 micron PIII die-shrink codenamed Tualatin.

The 933MHz PIII makes its final appearance in Intel's desktop roadmap in late Q2/early Q3, before disappearing off the chart, so don't expect this one to hang around for too long before being completed replaced by faster Tualatins.

The pricing of the 766MHz Celeron and the 750MHz Mobile PIII - both identical to the next fastest processor in each chip's class - suggest they're not long for this world either.

The highest discounts are reserved for the Mobile PIII family, indicating faster Tualatin-based Mobile PIIIs aren't far off.
