Intel 'preps' Pentium 4 6xx price cuts

Paving the way for VT-enabled versions

Intel will take the axe to its Pentium 6xx series price-list this weekend, Taiwanese motherboard maker sources have claimed.

The cuts, reported by DigiTimes, are said to see the 90nm single-core processor family's prices reduced by up to 33.7 per cent.

The cuts will see each model drop a price grade: the 670 will fall from $851 to $605 (down 28.9 per cent), the 660 from $605 to $401 (33.7 per cent) and the 650 from $401 to $273 (31.9 per cent). The 640 and 630 will fall further, from $273 and $224, respectively, to $218 and $178, the sources allege.

It's likely the cuts are being made to make room for upcoming additions to the 6xx family which will introduce support for Intel's Virtualisation Technology (VT). Those parts are believed to be numbered 662 and 672 to indicate the benefits of VT even though other speeds and feeds match those of the 660 and 670. ®
