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.

What is this the Kiddies corner for mindless babble! Did you all forget that Pentium was the Design chip by the Founder of AMD! after winning the lawsuit agains Itel for Trying to Steal his Design He licenced Back to Intel.Why Because He Had a better processor Design in the Works AMD.Now That the FPU units have been fixed AMD Chips Consistantly Outpreform Itels of the Same Speed on Chips of &00mhz and up.As for Stabilty Well I Run Itels and AMDs on my Lan the only intability I see is Winblows and other buggy as hell Game software. Anyway Make yer Choice and quit Bitching things can only get better with time ;)

See the big picture lads.If AMDs chips didn't rival Intels then there wouldn't be any competition and none of these tasty price cuts.AMD have the better chip of the moment but major OEMs won't swap from Intel due to the support and trade establishedalready with intel over the past decade.Intel have also far greater economies of scale and resources to develope faster chips.We should hope that AMD can hang in there and stop Intel from re-gaining its monopoly (economically this seems probable).

Intel is a good company but they took for granted their monopoly over the processor market. Due to that, Intel has always been working at a rather slow pace but always made sure the chips were working fine.Now with stiff competition from AMD, Intel is having huge problems speeding up their work pace.

some of you people posting messages here are so immature. No processor is better then the other, each one has its own advantage. So whoever is trying to prove that one processor is better then the other, go back to preschool.

Intel announces price cuts

if you all remember correctly AMD broke the 1 Ghtz barrier first, then intel scrammbled to catch up with them before they relesed it. it doesn't matter though, ibm is working on chips that will be able to go up to 5 ghtz!!!!

Intel announces price cuts

IF THE INTEL FACTORY BLEW UP AND THEY COULDN'T PRODUCE NEW CHIPS ANY MORE THEY WOULD HAVE ENOUGH NEW MODELS TO LAUNCH OUT FOR THE NEXT 20 YEARS THAEY HAVE ALREADY HIT ALL THESE MILE STONES THEY JUST DON"T WANT TO LAUNCH THEM OUT TO THE MINDLESS PUBLIC BECAUSE THEY HAVE TO BE ONE STEP FASTER AND BETTER THAN US. AND THEY MAKE MUCK MORE SPONDULIES LAUNCHING THEM OUT SLOWLY ANYWAY.

Paco PSX suck a lot of ****!! PSX is borring i buy a game for my PC in a weeki can already start downloading extra cars files etc PSX you keep on playing that same level everyday using same player same car etc well i on the other hand each next lap donload a new car to try out PSX 2 suck even more X-Box twice the pethetic PSX2 ok so you r telling me PSX3 ooooh ok how about X-Box 2 when it comes hopefully x-box is a little baby witchis only the begging****edstation not playstation and intel latest CPU and AMD are already 4 times PSX3 so suck my **** nvidia plus a good CPU can kick any playsation upside down PLaYSTAtion is for kids you dumb **** you paco cheap ass mother ****

Intel Sux!***k the 1.13 Ghz Chip.Intel is on meant for losers who have like to throw money out of the window...Incompatibility problems with AMD chips are crap....i have never come across a single compatiblity glitch after i tried win98...even microsoft admitted it was windows 95's problem...Also the heat myth is a lodda BULL!my AMD K6III 450 overclocked to 500 runs at a smooth 45 degrees max!

Intel announces price cuts

With all you amd supporters out there ROCK ON YOU GUYS KICKS SOME MAJOR ASS!!!! I though i was the only one and jodin77 you can suck my balls you ass intell can lick a **** and is not the best with the new athlon out code name thunderbird (with enhanced chace memory) they can kick any bodys ass if you guys didnt know this yet AMD HAS RELASED THE T-BIRD 1.1GHZ ATHLONG ALREADY SAY HELL YES. Quazievil you are totally riht there isnt any glitchs if you think they are go shut the hell up. and they dont have heat problems. now every body reading this ponder this amd chips are faster and cheaper than intell now what are you going to buy if you have half a brain at computers then you would know not to buy an intell chip ok. I SUPPORT AMD ALL THE WAY. if you guys wanna know i am running the classic athlon at 600mhz and i built my system on my own that is why my system is a kick ass gaming machine and well beat any console system that ever comes out on the market. AMD LOVERS LIVE ON BOYCOTT INTELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Intel announces price cuts

Playstation and all the other piss weak consoles don't even come into the competition they are for even poorer arse people than the poor arse people that have to buy AAAAAAAMMMMMMMDDDDDD's to have a computer instead of the raw power of INTEL. The x-box is probably alright it does have a INTEL PENTIUM IN IT but they don't HAVE THE RESOLUTION THERE 800x600x32bit thats only because that is what regular TV's go up to anyway. they may say it has 128bit but a tv only goes up to 32bit unless you have a digital TV. INTEL's RULE THAT IS ALL THERE IS TO IT THEY HAVE BEEN AROUND LONGER HAVE SUPPORT FOR ALL SOFTWARE AND ARE MORE STABLE MORE POWERFUL AND FASTER AND WILL BEAT AAAAAAAAMMMMMDDDDDDDD's ARSE ANYDAY

Intel announces price cuts

Oh my God!. HUNTER, that is the BEST joke I´ve ever seen.Really funny.You have nearly make me believe it!!!!, for a moment I thought if Intel could be better than an AMD... but NOT!Hey!, but it was funny. And look at ALL those UPPER CASE LETTERS. Wow!. I THINK THAT YOU REALLY DONT LIKE WHAT YOU´RE WRITING.Don´t worry Intel want us to believe they have the BEST (do you notice the UPPER CASE?) chips, and many years it has been always the same.Thanks AMD for my Athlon cause it has beat up any PIII Ive ever met!.But you can dream on... Its free!!!!...

Intel announces price cuts

First of all *INTELman* the P4 is capable of a 400mhz bus...while the Athlons Alpha EV6 bus is scalable to 600mhz. =P Its called research. Do some. Secondly the Athlon is not to compete wit the P4 I'm pretty sure either the Mustang or Sledgehammer will. Thirdly, I'm not with or against AMD or Intel, but I suggest you people who are to stop say stuff like "AMD is way better than Intel" (or whatever) without some decent proof or a valid point. *PERSONALLY* I will have to go with AMD at this point. Intel prices are still way to high, AMD has the best prices. It all about the price. What good is the fastest processor in the world if nobody can buy it? ;P BTW-I own an AMD 600@825. I was really accustomed to Intel, but AMD came in and was cheaper and had equal or better performance (at the time). ALSO, you can't really say one processor is better than the other, because it all depends what software your using. Q3 supports SSE more than 3Dnow, so if your really into Q3...get intel. Hmmm...actually I don't know of any progrmas that use 3Dnow better...I'm sure they are out there, I just don't know em. The only real gripe I have with AMD processors are that they get pretty hot. Small gripe. =)

Intel announces price cuts

In reponse to HUNTER: What are you talking about 128bit color or 128bit system?? I highly doubt the X-box will support 128bit color and I'm pretty sure the console is 256bit. The consoles bit has nothing to do with the TV, its the internal transmissiting path's width. Also, Regular TVs can only go up to 640x480. I'm pretty sure about that too, but not definite. Geez, I just notice how half of this board is just insulting each other over this. Christ people! Get a grip. They are just CPUs. =) I just hope both companies are around a while so one just doesnt end up sitting on their asses making the price go up.

Intel announces price cuts

At last!!!! Someone with some knownledge.You are right Aleph1. Better permormance of the K7 varies qith the software you are using.But Q3 runs better on my K7 600 than on my "other" system (a Coppermine 633), and you´re right it runs better without using NONE of the 3DNow instrucctions set. I remember you all that 3DNow its not implemented in Q3 (only Q2).But its really good to see that there are some people that know what theyre talking about instead of the "my system is better because its mine...".And let me say one thing...PIV is a shit that not supports multiprocesing at all!!!!, because its SHARED, K7 is point-to-point.And buy a strong Case because the termal device (to avoid overheating) is 0.5 kg!!!!I prefer the hammerhead...

Intel announces price cuts

Reply ALEPH1 I may stand corrected on xbox being 128bit but I was led to beleive by the developers homepage on the web that it was 128bit not 256bit. and when my computer sends a video signal out to my tv I can get a max resolution of 800x600x32bit that is all and you notice the diff in colour and resolution it has choices for 640x480x16 and 32 as well.

Cypher: I assume you are a mac user. Tell me this...what performance has mac given you? Thats right. NONE. You shouldnt even be able to post here, you are simply outclassed. Unless of course you are stupid enough to shell out $5000 or so for a powermac G4 500. Mac is not a computer, they are appliances. =) There is practically nothing for mac (other than macs stuff of course)...hardware and software. Mac is a dying breed. The only thing remotely good about Mac is one with unix on it =)Just a side note: I suggest you all take a look at the AMD K8 (Hammer). Go to Anandtech.com I think it will blow the P4 out of the water, since its 32 and 64 bit and supports DDR ram, not expensive RDram. How they mananged to get SSE and SSE2 licensed is a mystery to me...hehe

Intel announces price cuts

How grown up you guys are. I am not going to say which side I am on all I will say is the facts speak for themselves.You have too look at the comparitve speeds for equivalent prices and buy what you think is th best for your money.As for incompatibility I have an AMD and an Intel based machine they seem the same for stability. I have more problems with windows being a bit lame.Flame me all you want for this post I don't care you only make yourselfs look stupid.

Example of Power vs Name.Buddy's Intel Celeron 600 mhz, ATI TV video card. Forget the actuall Model256 megs of ram.VsAMD K6-2 500 Mhz 96 megs of ramVoodoo 3 2000 PCIMy AMD won every time. Only thing my friend's computer beat mine on was on the Cd-RW burn speed. (He has a SCSI card installed along with his IDE)I only have IDE.

Intel announces price cuts

Intel vs. AMD is a moot conversation. As for Intel being around so much longer, it's true. But AMD started to really roast Intel with the 5x86 which was a 486 cpu that ran at 133Mhz and out performed a P75 (which at the time was a really cool chip)AMDs have faster floating point calculation abilities, which you want for all those high end graphics games. One thing to keep in mind when compring your favorite brand to you buddy's is that the RAM and gaphics card make a huge difference in the performance as well.As for AMD chips burning out all the time, I can tell you as a tech that it's a load of garbage. I've built a lot of systems for people and tested them out with a lot of different games and utilities. I advise my customers to go with AMD chips because I"ve found that over all they outperform Pentiums and I don't expect that to change any time in the near future.Rmember.... you don't always get what you pay for.

Intel announces price cuts

AMD outweighs Intel at every turn.Improved floating point, at least equal to Intel (apparently faster).Far more games dsigned with the athalon in mind.and the Price difference can be upto 50% cheaper.I'm a software Engineer and I would recommend Athalon every time.Intel Inside, Bollocks, Shite Inside. Buy an Athalon.

Intel announces price cuts

AMD RULES INTEL U SUCK PEOPLE THAT HAVE A INTEL ARE STUPID AMD ARE CHEAPER AND FASTER AND CAN BE OVERCLOCKED VERY HIGHLIKE MY ATHLON 700MHZ GOT IT TO 896 AND DID QUAKE 3 TEST FOR 2 DAY'S AND DID NOT CRASH SO (AMD1 INTEL 0

Intel announces price cuts

Y3r sif AMD is better, [url removed] out the Upgrade article with Celery, P3, Athlon and Duron... P3 is still ahead... and doesn't have as many compatibility problems.Wake up and stop being so narrow minded...

Intel announces price cuts

I remember when I first got an Athlon 600 Mhz, because it was suppose to be far superior to a Pentium III, and all I got for my hard earn money was a bunch of compatibility issues, for days I couldn't anything with this Athlon, due to the fact that it wasn't compatible with half of my hardware, after a week I was convince that a Pentium III was a better choice, if you ask me, they could of called the AMD Athlon a AMD Asslon, because it's a royle pain in the ass to get all of your hardware to work correctly with an Athlon.

Intel announces price cuts

Mr.Pentium: 73% of people in the computer industry are complete idiots? You must be included in that 73%. AMD and Intel both have 'real power'. They are both good cpus, I've said this before and I'll say it again: It all depends on your software. Second of all 'Mr.Pentium', have you ever had an AMD Athlon?? Don't lie. You probably haven't. I OWN one and my good friend has a P3, they are both awesome. However, I think the Athlon is better simply because it has a lower price. If you Intel fanatics think paying less means less performance, you are dead wrong. I laugh at those type of people. BTW-No wonder Intel is charging so much, they dropped 22% stock-wise and they need the money...hehe.

Intel announces price cuts

Ok, Processors, very nice, wasnt this article about price drops and not an article on how AMD beats Intel and invites u to start a flame war, just Chill, do some research with an open mind, look up the facts then see if the price cuts from Intel really are a good offering to the Public or are just slacking behind AMD's reign of power. Think about it, from what i can see the only proper posting here is from "Aleph1" who knows what he's on about it... see if u can follow suit and not make yourselves look like arses on your next posts.
