Cheaper chips from Intel coming soon

Intel_pentium Wasn’t it just a few days ago we heard that Samsung was thinking of an AMD-powered UMPC to cut costs? I strongly suspect that plans might revert back based on Intel’s plans to cut chip prices up to 60% in an effort to regain market share from AMD. Bloomberg is reporting that the chipmaker will reduce dual core processors by 15% in price and older Pentium chips by as much as 60% starting next month. Couple this with the fact that Intel is aiming for chips that are more efficient power consumers and you’ve got a recipe for disaster if you’re in the AMD camp from a business perspective. Regardless of your chip preference between Intel, AMD or even Via in a mobile device, this bodes well for all mobile consumers.
