Intel yesterday reduced the prices of a number of its Pentium 4 processors ahead of today's debut of 'Prescott', the 90nm version of the chip family.

Prices fell between 33 and 16 per cent, but only the 130nm chips the match the new 90nm introductions' clock frequencies were adjusted: 2.8GHz/533MHz FSB, 2.8GHz/800MHz FSB, 3.06GHz/533MHz FSB, 3GHz/800MHz FSB and 3.2GHz/800MHz FSB.

Chipzilla also pruned prices of its top-end Mobile Pentium 4 line, by up to 32 per cent.
