Intel chops desktop Celeron prices

Holds steady on other lines

Intel today refreshes its OEM price lists, last updated at the end of January. And whaddya know - all remains the same, except for the bargain basement desktop Celerons.

The 1.3GHz Celeron with 256k cache now costs $84, 18 per cent down on the previous published price of $103.
The 1.2GHz costs $79 ($87 -11%); The 1.10A GHz is now $69 ($79 -13%); and the 1.0A GHz now comes in at $64 ($69 -7%).

All the Celerons above have 256k cache and all are built on 0.13m manufacturing technology. Remember that prices are quoted for trays of 1,000 units, so there won't be an exact correlation when they feed their way to the retail level. ®
