Intel cuts Pentium III prices up to 14%

Intel is gearing up to introduce its 600MHz Pentium III processor next month, announcing price cuts of up to 14 per cent on its existing range of Pentium III processors.

The price cuts also come a month or so before rival Advanced Micro Devices is due to introduce its Athlon processor, formerly the K7, which it will aim at the same high-end desktop markets as Intel's Pentium III. Intel said the timing of the price reductions isn't related.

"We have a new product, the Pentium III 600MHz, coming shortly, and we're adjusting the pricing to make room for the new product," an Intel spokesman said.

Intel cut 12 per cent off the price of 550MHz and 500MHz Pentium IIIs and 14 per cent of the 450MHz Pentium III. Intel also cut the price of the 450MHz Pentium II processor by 14 per cent, the company said.

An Intel executive last week said the company has begun shipping the 600MHz Pentium III to PC manufacturers, who plan to offer the chip in desktops and workstations in August.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
