5/18/2001: Intel reacts with the manufacture in 0,13 microns
Intel is not happening in his best moment, test of it is the market share that AMD has taken from him in this first trimester of the year. His 0,18 microns Pentium III (Coppermine) cannot raise it to any more than 1 GHz and compete this way with the AMD Athlon. If it was small, his Pentium 4 has not come off so much like the Intel managers they had wished for his high price and "scarce" yield compared to the AMD Athlon, or even with their own Pentium III to 1 GHz.
Short-term solution? To lower the prices of his microprocessors again, as it has being habitual; this, according to the very well informed boys of The Register and ZDNet, will be May 27, with a clipping that will come up to 38 %. In particular Pentium III to 1 GHz would fall down 14 % being located in 193 $. The version for portable would do the proper thing to 1 GHz, lowering at least 12 % (probably more, before the exit of the Athlon 4). The Celeron for office to 800 MHz (the first one with bus 100 MHz Federal Security Service ) would lower 20 %, falling down up to 74 $.
Medium-term solution? To begin delivering the first units of the review of Pentium III made of 0,13 micron s technology , the Tualatin as soon as possible, probably at the beginning of July. This technology would allow to Intel to overcome the barrier of the gigahertzio with facility and low the price of the costs of production, a few essential measurements if he does not want to miss the AMD train.
Meanwhile, all this benefits the users (it was already an hour), and everything is necessary to be grateful for it to AMD. He does not stop being an onlooker that the "smaller, more rapid and cheaper quantum" beginning on which the current mikes are based, is the whole advertizing claim. The Physics and the Marketing saying the same... what things the life has.
