Cyrix cuts will trim PC prices

Cyrix has trimmed prices on its high-end 6x86 processors, taking advantage of Intel's refusal to cut the cost of its chips until February 1997. The Cyrix move will mean slightly cheaper systems over the rest of the year for PC buyers.

Cyrix has trimmed prices on its high-end 6x86 processors, taking advantage of Intel's refusal to cut the cost of its chips until February 1997. The Cyrix move will mean slightly cheaper systems over the rest of the year for PC buyers.

The price cuts apply to Cyrix's P133, P150 and P200 chips. Although the chips' clock frequencies are slower, the numbers apply to independently rated performance compared to Intel Pentium CPUs running at 133MHz, 150MHz and 200MHz clock speeds.
