Intel takes axe to Pentium 4 prices

Including 64-bit Prescotts

Intel yesterday knocked up to 35 per cent of the prices of its Pentium 4 processors, in both their mobile and desktop forms - not to mention the 64-bit versions aimed at workstations and servers - as anticipated.

The chip giant also reduced the pricing of some Socket 478 Celeron chips ahead of the anticipated roll-out of 775-pin Socket T versions.
