Intel to 'cut Pentium D prices' next January

Celeron too

Intel will trim its dual-core Pentium D and single-core Celeron processor prices in January 2006, Taiwanese sources have alleged.

The cuts come as no great surprise. Intel has announced it will ship 65nm Pentium D processors in Q1 2006, so we'd expect it to cut the prices of the current 8xx line-up to make way for the 9xx 'Presler' parts. Ditto a reduction in what it charges for Pentium 4 6xx chips ahead of the introduction of 'Cedar Mill', the 65nm single-core in that same Q1 2006 timeframe.

The sources, cited by DigiTimes today, said up to 20.1 per cent will be knocked off the 8xx prices and 5.5-13.6 per cent off the Celeron chip line-up. ®
