Intel will announce slight price reductions on its Pentium III family next weekend, followed by even deeper discounts early next year, according to The Register.
The Santa Clara, Calif.-based chipmaker reportedly will slash the price of its flip chip, socket 370 Pentium III-600 – with 256K cache and 133MHz bus support – to about $310/1000.
Also in late January, sources say the company will drop the price of its .25 micron Pentium III-500 to around $190/1000. That’s when Intel introduces the Pentium III-750, likely to cost around $740/1000, although it’s still not clear whether the 750MHz chip will include 133MHz front side bus support.
More price cuts are expected in late February on both Celerons and Pentium IIIs.
