ZDNet heeft een zooitje info over de in juni geplande prijsdalingen van Intel:
On Thursday, sources confirmed that Intel (Nasdaq:INTC) has scheduled to cut prices on its low-cost line of processors by 6 percent to 21 percent effective June 6.
The price of its top-end 466MHz Celeron will drop 13 percent to $147, while its 433MHz Celeron processor will fall 21 percent to $113. Intel's 400MHz and 366MHz Celeron processors will drop to $93 and $69, respectively.
While AMD stresses that its price cuts earlier in May take into account Intel's long-scheduled move, the company find its position in the low-end market more problematic than ever.
"Intel's average selling price for the Pentium II and Pentium III are in the $200 to $300 range," said Mike Feibus, principal analyst with chip market watcher Mercury Research Inc. "That's a far cry from where AMD is now -- in the low-70s."
To survive long term, AMD has admitted that it needs to get the average selling price, or ASP, of its chips in the $100 range -- something that it has failed to do for some time.
...en dat hopen ze dus te bereiken met de K7.
