Intel cuts prices for Dell
DigiTimes reports that Intel has apparently offered increased discounts to Dell to counteract the PC giant's growing interest in AMD processors. DigiTimes cites the Pentium D 820-powered Dell PowerEdge SC430 server as an example, a system that costs just $3 more than the retail Pentium D 820 alone. Intel also introduced a low-end dual-core product—the Pentium D 805, which retails for around $150—and sources claim that the company will also cut prices for its Pentium D 9xx series CPUs next month. With Intel's next-generation Core chips coming this summer, it looks like Intel is doing everything it can to hold Dell over until then.
