In similar style to AMD, Intel are heavily slashing prices on their Pentium range of processors to make way for the new Core 2 Duo lineup.
Intel has taken a sharp knife to its price list, slashing what it charges for its microprocessors by up to 61 per cent as the company makes way for its Core 2 Duo desktop and mobile CPUs. The chip maker also introduced some old-style Pentium D parts.
The new Pentium Ds are the 3.4GHz 945 - a version of the existing 950 but without Virtualisation Technology. It comes in at $163, operates over an 800MHz frontside bus, has 4MB of L2 and is fabbed at 65nm. The 805 - 2.66MHz, 533MHz FSB, 2MB L2, 90nm - is introduced at $93.
