Intel will continue with low-price strategy to sell Pentium Ds

Posted on Thursday, January 18 2007 @ 15:57:45 CET by

Intel's Q4 profits were a lot lower than a year ago but the company will continue with its low-price strategy to clear its Pentium D inventory.
Intel plans to raise the proportion of its multi-core processor shipments to 80% in the third quarter 2007. While the proportion of its Presler-core Pentium D shipments will reduced by 75% at that time, Intel will have the Conroe-core Pentium E2000 series fill the gap, according to the sources.

While Conroe's popularity is growing in the market, there is question as to how Intel can clear its Pentium D inventory by the third quarter. Pricing seems to be the necessary measure, the sources remarked.

But as Conroe is set to become the mainstream in the market, major PC vendors may not be willing to help Intel clear the Pentium D processors, which may then flood the retail market and further plunge prices.
