Intel Corp has chopped the prices of its Pentium II and Pentium with MMX processors by up to 24%, claiming that high demand has enabled it to ramp the products up into higher volume price points. In quantities of 1,000, the high end 300MHz Pentium II will now cost $738, a 13% drop from $851, while the lower end 233MHz model has fallen 24% to $401. The 166MHz Pentium MMX is now 23% cheaper at $112, while the 233MHz Pentium MMX is down 22% at $300. Intel says the price cuts position the Pentium II for mainstream system price points, while the cheaper MMX-enabled Pentiums are likely to find their way into price-sensistive home and business desktops. Prices for Pentium Pro chips, which are aimed at the server and workstation markets, remain unchanged.
