Intel to announce new 2.5/2.6GHz Celerons and update CPU/chipset prices
According to The Inquirer, closer to the end of the next month, on June 25, Intel plans to announce new desktop Socket 478 Celerons with 2.5GHz and 2.6GHz clock speeds and $89, $102 wholesale prices. However, before that, on May 25, we should expect a price cut for 2.4, 2.3, 2.2 and 2.1 GHz CPUs down to $85, $79, $74, $74, respectively.
Besides, on May 21 some Intel Springdale chipsets should get cheaper as well. i865G, i865PE and i865P models together with ICH5R (RAID) Southbridge will cost $44, $39 and $36, respectively (w/o RAID (ICH5) these will cost $41, $36, $33).
The next chipset price cut is expected in late June, but the company might leave i875P prices ($53 with RAID and $50 without) as is.
