Future prices of Intel Xeon, Xeon MP, Madison processors

British The Inquirer informs that Intel plans to cut prices for server and workstation Intel Xeon processors, including yet not announced 3.06GHz Xeon with 1Mb L3 cache and 533MHz FSB which might enter the market under some new name. Prices are for over 1,000-unit quantities as always:

XeonApril 20Q3
3.06GHz /533 MHz/1 Mb-$690 (release)
3.06 GHz / 533 MHz$690$455 (-34%)
3.0GHz / 400 MHz$658$433 (-34%)
2.8 GHz / 533 MHz$455$316 (-30%)
2.8 GHz / 400 MHz$433$294 (-32%)
2.66 GHz / 533 MHz$284$256 (-10%)
2.6 GHz / 400 MHz$273$234 (-14%)

In the field of "heavy" chips for parallel systems we should expect 2.8GHz Xeon MP with 2Mb cache for $3692, while 2.0GHz Xeon MP with 2Mb cache is to be cancelled. Instead the company will release 1Mb cache, 2.5GHz ($1990) and 2.0GHz ($1177) models.

Now something about expected prices for 64-bit Itanium 2 codenamed "Madison". Scheduled for announcement to June 30, 1.5GHz model with 6Mb cache will be released for $4225; 1.5GHz model with 4Mb cache (Deerfield-based) for $2250; 1.3GHz Itanium 2 with 3Mb cache for $1338. According to provisional data, in Q3 we should see 64-bit Low Voltage 1GHz Itanium 2 with 1.5Mb cache for dual-processor systems for $750.
