After the price cuts of his mobile Pentium M CPUs on October the 5th, Intel will soon reduct the price of even more products. According to DigiTimes there are a few price cuts planned for October the 26th.
The new price cuts are widely seen as timed to take on the 64-bit Athlon 64 processors rolled out by AMD in late September.
The Athlon 64 3200+ with 754 pins is priced at US$417 and the more powerful Athlon 64 FX-51 carries a price tag of US$733. The Athlon 64 3200+ and 3000+ for notebooks are priced at US$417 and US$278, respectively.
The price for Intel’s soon-to-be-released 3.4GHz processors will start at US$637. It is reported that the price for P4 EE (Extreme Edition) CPUs, developed especially for gamers, will start at US$700
In addition to pitching its Hyper-Threading Technology (HT) processors against AMD’s new lineup, Intel has follow-up plans in store. The company is scheduled to unveil its Grantsdale chipsets in the second quarter of 2004 to support the new-generation Socket T (LGA775) CPU. Intel should also debut the Tejas CPU in the second half of 2004.
