In January we can expect price cuts on Intel's Pentium 4 processors.
In January 2007, Intel will cut prices on processors including the 651 (3.4GHz/2MB L2/800MHz FSB), 641 (3.2GHz/2MB L2/800MHz FSB), 631 (3GHz/2MB L2/800MHz FSB), 541 (3.2GHz/1MB L2/800MHz FSB) and 531 (3GHz/1MB L2/800MHz FSB) by up to 58%, in an attempt to clear inventory prior to the Conroe-L launch, according to motherboard makers.

In addition, Intel intends to clear inventory of 915 chipsets by bundling the series with its Pentium 4 processors, indicated the sources. As the 915 chipsets are designed not to support the dual-core platform, clearing inventory has become increasingly harder, the makers commented.
