Intel, AMD to slash desktop processor prices
Author: JT Smith
The Register reports that AMD and Intel will go head-to-head with aggressive price cuts next week. Look for the pricing on select AMD XP and Intel Pentium 4 processors to drop by 23 to 29 percent. We're assuming that these cuts, as in every other case, are for volume buyers. Unless you happen to need about a thousand or so chips next week, plan on waiting a few weeks for the price cuts to trickle down to retail.
