OK, so it was a day or so later than expected, but Intel has at last hacked back the prices of its current line-up of desktop and mobile, pro and consumer-oriented processors.

Chipzilla confirmed the cuts yesterday.

As predicted, the reductions are greatest on the Pentium III and Pentium 4 parts, to shift the former and begin broadening the appeal of the latter.

"We are transitioning between the Pentium III generation and the Pentium 4 generation," said Intel spokesfolk Mike Sullivan, speaking to the Dow Jones newswire. "The way to accelerate that transition is to work hard on manufacturing technology to make the Pentium 4 more affordable across all system categories."
