Trading volumes on the CPU spot market are low, as system builders wait for their new Intel price lists, according to the channel checkers at Boston investment bank Fechtor Detwiler. Expect price cuts on Friday and in the order of 10-20 per cent on 1.7 P4s and above, they say.

Intel’s last big round of desktop P4 price cuts was in April – by the end of Q2, some parts will be almost 60 per cent cheaper than they were at the beginning of the year. ®
