Intel announces price cuts

Intel updated their price list, dropping the price of 933-MHz Pentium III Xeons used as server computers to $558 from $719 each in volume purchases, after introducing a speedier, 1-GHz Xeon last week.

In an attempt to moderate the consequences of the "glitch" which caused them to recall the 1.13-GHz processors, intel also dropped the price of the 1-GHz Pentium IIIs found in desktop computers which will now cost $669, down from $990.

Other price cuts, include the drop in price of 933-MHz Pentium IIIs to $508 from $669, and 866-MHz chips to $358 from $465. Celerons running at 700MHz now cost $138, down from $192. The 667-MHz chips were cut to $112 from $170, while 633-MHz chips are down to $93 from $138.

The price of 750-MHz Pentium IIIs for laptops was lowered to $401 from $562.

Intel announces price cuts

I upgraded my pentium I 200mhz comp to a 550 athelon about 4 months ago. Even 4 months ago the upgrade only cost me $300. Yeah my neighbor payed about $600 to upgrade to an intel pentium 3 500. it's slightly more stable but i don't believe it was worth the money. with the extra cash i saved by using an AMD i can afford more ram, and a 550 athelon with 192 ram is better than any 500 pent.3 with 64 ram

AAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMMMMDDDDDDDDDDD'sTHEY ALL SUCK SHIT CRASHES ILLEGAL OPERATIONS "ILLEGAL OPERATION UNABLE TO LOCATE CCCCCCCCCCPPPPPPPPUUUUUUUUUUUUAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMMMDDDDDDDDDD NOT COMPATIBLE WITH SOFTWARE"!!!!!! WHAT CHEAP UNCOMPATIBLE VILE PIECES OF SHIT THAT ARE BUILT FOR PISS POOR PEOPLE THAT CAN'T AFFORD THE RAW POWER OF INTEL

Let me settle this debate. The AMD athlon processor is far superior to the pentium III and the pentium IV. The early benchmarks have showed the PIV to be slower then the PIII and athlon.If you really want pentium III speed then just buy an amd 750 mhz duron processor. It's The low end version of the athlon but still has a 200 mhz bus and only costs $189 for a 750 mhz chip. The Duron outperforms the 66 mhz bus celeron by 30%I am very glad Amd is around so we can have fast machines at a fair price. Intel is failing in the chip sector and they are trying to move into the internet applience area. It looks like in a few years Amd will be the majority supplier of chips. I'm waiting on the 32/64 bit Amd 2ghz 8th generation sledgehammer, due out in late 2001. That is going to be a machine sent from the gods.Sorry to burst your bubble but Amd is far superior then intel. Intels products are old and slow.

Yes the amd machines rock. My friends and I love them. My next cpu will be a 1.2 ghz amd thunderbird upgraded to a 266 megahurtz bus running DDR RAM! That ram is the fastest on the market and it's the same ram used in the gforce gfx card.Long live Amd. Down with Intel.

Ive had a P1, P2 and an AMD K6-2 and now a P3. Someone in my family has a Athlon and my P3 kicks its ass, its only a 450 overclocked to 504mhz but it ****s all over the Athlon 750mhz. ......So longggggg AMD who does us so wrongggggg, we dont wanna go onnnnnn living in this world with you.......

Intel announces price cuts

ermmmmm yeah......... AMD well, its for poor people aint it, People like ****in refugees. Intels for us geezers that spoil ourselves and get all the best stuff. ha ha ha ha haaaaaaaa. I had an AMD once, yuck - I can afford the best now cos im no longer a student. Intel rules baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

**** this im waiting till the 1GHz goes down to 10$. i got a 233P with mmx. for 10$ and im not going to pay all that ****ing money to see a 3x faster cpu. in one year. is sucks to pay all that money then the next day have it go down like 100$. it happens to games too like fightforce (gay game) i got it for 50$ thing the next ****ing DAY it went to 20$. all im saying is **** 700$ for 1GHz when they make a new one the price goes down a lot. and also who needs a ghz all most all games run great on a 400p with a 3d card.

Boy, you guys don't know a thing do you. Intel had to do this because AMD was destroying them. They crushed them with the 1.1 ghz chip. Hell, intel had to recall their 1.13 ghz chip because they don't know how to build them. Wake up and smell the coffee and realize that Intel is second fiddle and AMD is a first class company that know how to make real processors. They don't recall theirs and they don't paper launch any either. Good luck with your Pentium chips, just hold off for a while before you buy one, just in case Intel has to recall them!
