Intel Processor release schedule announced

Intel announced the release schedule for its new processors.
According to the schedule Q3 2000 will see the release of the 700 MHz Celeron and the 933MHz and 1 GHz Pentium 3'S.
Q4 2000 will have the 733 and 766 MHz Celerons the Pentium 3 1 GHz and will introduce the Pentium 4 1.3 AND 1.4 GHz models,
Finally Q1 2001 will sport the 766 and 800 MHz Celeron's, the 666 and 700 MHz new Timna processors, a 1.13 GHz Pentium 3 model and finally the Pentium 4 1.4 and 1.5 GHz processors.
This announcement was accompanied with the new Intel prices which, probably as a reaction to AMD pricing reports, slashed prices.
Intel's family of Pentium III processors is now available at a lower price. The Santa Clara based company cut the PIII's prices by up to 24 percent. The 933MHz model dropped 10 percent, and is now $699, while the slower 750MHz chip is now $262. The PIII Xeon processors also received a price drop. The 933MHz is now $719, and the 866MHz is $515. Intel made no announcement regarding price arrangements on 1GHz+ chips.
