This Week

This week, we continue to see the effects of the price cuts Intel announced in late January. Now, the Pentium 4 and Pentium III 1.0GHz are even more appealing to their AMD counterparts. The higher clocked Celerons are also showing the effects of the price drops.

AMD finally gives us the Athlon-C 266MHz FSB processor this week. Though prices for this chip are high (even for AMD), expect prices to drop as their popularity picks up. Prices on Thunderbirds and Durons should remain steady until Intel poses a serious threat.

In the video card category, we see that the there have been some price fluctuations for the 3dfx Voodoo5. NVIDIA's prices will remain steady until the NV20 is released. As for ATI prices continue to drop for the third consecutive price guide. How low can ATI go? That remains to be seen...
