The Inquirer has seen some new desktop roadmaps from Intel that reveal the next round of Pentium 4 price cuts, including the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition's launch price. The roadmaps also hint that Prescott might not make it out until early next year.
At launch, the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition will apparently cost a whopping $925; Extremely Expensive, indeed. Thankfully, Intel is showing massive price cuts for its Pentium 4 line that would drop the Pentium 4 3.2GHz's price from over $600 all the way down to $417. Lower speed grades will also get hefty price cuts.
Against a $925 Pentium 4 Extreme Edition, the Athlon FX-51's $760 street price is actually a steal. A bigger problem for AMD will be Intel's next round of price cuts, which will highlight the fact that only a single, expensive Athlon 64 speed grade is available at 3200+.
