Sharky heeft z'n Weekly CPU Prices column van een update voorzien, met nieuws over de prijsontwikkelingen in de CPU markt:
Unlike the NASDAQ, which fell steeply this week, the CPUs listed here have held fairly similar prices to last week. Only the AMD Athlon line of CPUs actually did anything of note by falling a few dollars here and there. The Athlon 750 fell the most by $36 to $794 in part due to the market's realization of the immanent release of the Athlon 800Mhz. Overclockers might want to wait a while for the 800, which has been known to go as high as 900MHz without too much hassle. The middle of January still looks like a fairly safe bet for the appearance of the Athlon 800. The Athlon 500MHz, which has (as we reported last week) been discontinued, still looks like a bargain (bearing in mind its overclockability). [break] JC heeft inmiddels een Athlon 800 op Pricewatch.com ontdekt: [/break] Tonight, I decided to do one last search for "Athlon 800" at pricewatch. Voila! Lynn's has an entry for the K7-800. When? Surprisingly, they expect the part to be in stock this month. Their price, $899 plus $8 S+H.
Tried a search for "Pentium 800", "Intel 800", and other variants. No luck finding the PIII-800 yet. Actually, come to think of it, I cannot yet find any PIII-750 parts offered there! Patience ... in time, they will come.
