Intel slashes Pentium 4 6xx prices

Up to 34 per cent off

Intel yesterday pruned the prices of its Pentium 4 6xx processor series by up to 34 per cent. The cuts had been expected.

The EM64T-enabled single-core CPUs all feature 2MB of L2 cache and support the customary 800MHz frontside bus speed. They are fabbed at 90nm.

All five 6xx-class processors had their prices cut. The 3.8GHz 670 fell from $851 to $605, a fall of 28.9 per cent. The 3.6GHz 660 was cut to $401, 33.7 per cent off its previous price, $605. The 3.4GHz 650 now costs $273, down from $401, a cut of 31.9 per cent. The 3.2GHz 640 dropped 20.2 per cent, from $273 to $218. And the 3GHz 630 now costs $178, down 20.5 per cent from $224.

The rest of the chip giant's price list remained unchanged. Intel most recently cut its prices at the start of the month, when it knocked up to 13.6 per cent off the price of selected Celeron D processors. Its Centrino bundle prices were also trimmed, to reflect the addition of a pair of new Pentium M processors, the 780 and 778, to the line-up. ®
