According to x-bit labs 'very reliable' sources, Intel Is planning a number of serious changes to promote sales of its Pentium 4 processor.
Apart from yesterday's price cuts, Intel Plans a serious price cut at 29 per month (probably, Pentium 4 at 1.5Ghz dropped from a price of $ 635 to a price of $ 250, a decrease of about 60 percent in price, and the 1.4Ghz processor will be reduced from a price of $ 425 to a price of about $ 200, a decrease of 53 percent). As you may recall, these data were verified by a very reliable source.
in addition, Intel Plans to change the way processors will be sold.
Until now, anyone who wanted to buy a processor in a retail box (rather than an OEM) had to choose between two options: one with 128MB RDRAM memory, and one with 256MB.
The reason Intel did this was because RDRAM memories were not common, and it was hard to get them in local stores.
In recent times the memories have become more and more common, therefore Intel Decided to add another purchase option - no זיכרון rule.
in addition, Intel Also plans to offset the price of memories in 29 per month, along with the dramatic cut in prices of processors.
Intel seems very determined to sell its Pentium 4 processors…
