Posted by Thomas Xavier Gilberto | Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Intel has slashed prices of one of its top processors, the dual core PC processor to a little under $200. This may be to enable favourable competition with its chief rival AMD. Intel has however not made any adjustments to the prices of its mobile processors such as Intel Centrino. Intel's most advanced processor chip to date is priced at $851 while chips from AMD such as the Athlon x26400 in a similar mould are not only cheaper but faster. Intel's first quad core mobile processor is being prepared to be launched this august.
