Intel will prune the prices of its Celeron D processors and 915-class chipsets next year, reports coming out of Taiwan claim.

The Celeron D cuts will take place on Sunday, 20 February 2005, and see up to 13.6 per cent. The cuts target the 325, 330, 335, 340 and 345 chips, in both their regular forms and the 'J" variants with Execute Disable Bit support.

The price of the 345 will fall from $127 to $117, the 340 from $117 to $103, the 335 from $103 to $89, the 330 from $83 to $79, and the 325 from $79 to 73, the reports say.

Later, on Sunday, 3 April 2005, Intel will cut 'Grantsdale' prices by a couple of dollars to between $30 and $38, bringing the chipset family's prices even closer to those of the older, 478-pin 865 family.

The cuts are expected to come after an already reported round of cuts at the end of this month, and ahead of the introduction of 'Lakeport' and 'Glenwood', in Q2 ahead of the arrival of 'Smithfield', Intel's first dual-core desktop processor early in Q3. ®
