Intel had originally planned to introduce a massive price cut on April 22, but after AMD announced price cuts on February 12 for 17 desktop Athlon 64 single- and dual-core CPUs, Intel has decided to adjust its pricing earlier than expected, the report noted.
Channel distributors stated that price reduction will focus on entry-level and mainstream CPUs, with 820 and 915 series prices expected to drop 5-10% to around US$80. Intel has only recently updated its official January pricing, with most of its most recent price cuts being for Pentium 4, Pentium D and Celeron D processors.
