Intel to cut Celeron prices

Posted on Tuesday, Jul 06 2004 @ 02:11 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Intel is planning to reduce the prices of its Celeron CPU line according to some sources. This includes the new Celeron D models. The price cut is expected on August 22, in order to combat AMD's new Sempron processors. According to some the price cut is targeted against AMD's low voltage Sempron 2600+ and the Sempron 2800+.
The price reductions for Celeron D processors, including the Celeron D 330 (2.66GHz) and Celeron D 335 (2.80GHz), are expected to help boost sales of Intel 915 chipsets and 915-based motherboards, the sources indicated.

In addition to price cuts in August, Intel will also introduce a new Celeron D model, the Celeron 340 (2.93GHz), the sources noted.
