As we have come to expect Intel will be dropping its processor prices, following the much anticipated release of its Pentium 4 1.9 and 2 GHz models on Monday.
The drop in prices will be significant and will even reach 55% in some cases. Intel is also planning to release its Celeron 1.0 and 1.1 GHz soon.
The starting price for the new Pentium 4 chips will be $375 for the 1.9 GHz and $562 for the 2 GHz.
It seems that AMD will have a battle on two fronts since not only are they lagging in GHz power but Intel is also approaching their prices pretty fast.
