Intel Ivy Bridge gets pre-launch price cut
Posted by Hilbert Hagedoorn on: 04/17/2012 09:19 AM | 0 comment(s) ]
Intel has given some of its Ivy Bridge processors a price cut, even though the chips aren't even launched yet.
With Intel having had a hard time making up its mind with regards to when to actually launch its upcoming Ivy Bridge processors, we finally have some good news to report just ahead of the actual launch, Intel has decided to sell the new processors for less than initially expected. We've seen recent pricing details with the older prices still mentioned and although the price cuts aren't huge, any saving is a saving, right?
As you can see in the chart below, the average price cuts end up somewhere between US$7-8, not a massive amount, but considering that early price estimates were even higher, this is all good news. Do note that this is Intel's recommended customer pricing for 1,000 units and not the actual retail pricing.
