Ik zag op Coolinfo nog wat spul over het prijzbeleid van Intel:
Intel told PC makers yesterday that it will slash the prices of new and existing Celeron chips to within a hairsbreadth of rival AMD's K6-2, according to a source briefed by the company. "The big news is that Intel is serious about Celeron because they're actually dropping the most popular processors in the line to at or below that of the K6," said the source. While AMD officials weren't available to discuss possible retaliatory moves, it has maintained a policy of pricing 25 percent below Intel, and accordingly, could cut prices below Intel's by January.
Intel, as reported on CRWi last week, will introduce 366MHz and 400MHz Celerons on Jan. 4. Early introduction of the 400MHz Celeron represented an acceleration of Intel's timetable for the chip and suggested the company was becoming more serious about the low-end PC market, which is dominating sales this holiday season. According to the source, the price of the Celeron 400MHz chip will be between $150 and $160, depending on which form factor of the chip PC makers use for their motherboard designs. In a roadmap shown to CRW in November, the Celeron 400MHz was expected to be introduced at around $190.
