The Register verblijdt ons met de mededeling dat Intel inderdaad op 12 december haar prijzen zal verlagen. Helaas nog geen specifieke info over de sterkte van de daling.
As reported here earlier, Intel has now confirmed to its distributor and dealer channel that it will cut prices on the 12th of December next.
That will also be the date that its boxed Rambus motherboard, the VC820, becomes widely available for sale.
In a letter to large dealers, dated yesterday, Intel said: "On December 12, 1999, Intel will be reducing prices on boxed Pentium® III processors sold through authorised distributors. With this price move, Intel is delivering higher performance and better value in the performance desktop market segment.
"We will have more information available the week of the price move. Please contact your authorized Intel distributor after December 12, 1999 for specific pricing and availability details"
Another letter to dealers last week said that the VC820 will become available in mid-December.
