Intel will trim its Pentium 4 and Celeron D prices on 22 August, Taiwanese mobo maker sources have claimed, ahead of the anticipated launch of the 3.8GHz Pentium 4 570.

The 570 turned up on Intel roadmaps reported last April. While an exact launch date isn't known, the part's positioning in the middle of Q3 points to August.

Intel is already believed to be preparing Celeron D price cuts on 22 August, round about the time AMD is expected to launch its budget Sempron range. That it is also gearing up to cut P4 prices at the same time - along with the details of said price cuts - comes courtesy of a report in today's DigiTimes. ®
