This week we saw Intel's price cuts starting to settle in. The Pentium 4 is now more affordable than ever as are the higher end Pentium III's. The Celeron line of processors also saw some hefty price drops this week.
AMD gives us another Athlon-C (266MHz FSB) processor this week: the 1.13GHz Thunderbird. In addition, we saw a significant price drop on the 1.0GHz Athlon-C. We also saw a little action in the Thunderbird and Duron lines after weeks of no price fluctuations.
In the video card arena, we saw our first price drops with 3dfx cards since
their demise. We also clarified a hot topic in the ATI Radeon category and NVIDIA
gave us a taste of what's to come with the introduction of the GeForce3.
