Let the games begin! The Register meldt dat Intel de prijs van haar P3-500 zal gaan verlagen vanwege de populariteit van AMD's Athlon bij hardware fabrikanten. Altijd mooi voor de consument
A German distributor has alerted us to an unexpected Intel price cut on its 500MHz Pentium III part in week 34 of the year of the lord 1999.
The cut is a reaction to several major wins AMD has made both with large OEMs and local assemblers in Germany.
Compaq, Fujitsu and IPC (Archtec) will introduce K7 Athlon systems in Germany in weeks 33 to 34 of the year of the lord 1999.
Intel was always expected to start a bout of frenzied price slashing once K7 Athlon systems made their appearance.
We will talk to Intel UK later today to see whether it will confirm or deny the price cut. ®
