Intel Lower 865 Chipset Prices

Efforts by Intel to boost sales of its 845- and 865-series chipsets with favorable pricing are unlikely to result in significant results due to high inventory levels at leading Taiwan motherboard makers and channel distributors. Despite the recall of its recently launched 915/925 chipsets, Intel lowered some 865, 848 and 845 chipset prices on June 28 as planned. Taiwanese motherboard makers may not lower prices for 865 motherboards in the third quarter as planned, as the defect found in Intel’s recently launched 915/925 chipsets may delay PC industry migration to the new Intel Pentium platform.
