Intel plans to cut prices for selective single-core Pentium 4 and entry-level dual-core CPUs in the range of 5-10% before April 22. Intel had originally planned to introduce a massive price cut on April 22, but after AMD announced price cuts on Feb 12 for 17 desktop Athlon 64 single- and dual-core CPUs, Intel has decided to adjust its pricing earlier than expected. Price reduction will focus on entry-level and mainstream CPUs, with 820 and 915 series prices expected to drop 5-10% to around US$ 80.
