Next to the introduction of a couple of new processors Intel also dropped prices on several products.
The new Core i7 970 is positioned at 885 USD, unfortunately that's higher then we all expected. Then if we take the Core i7 870, that processor will see a huge price drop, really 48% it drops as it will now cost 294 USD coming from 562 USD. Added will be a more energy efficient model, the 870S priced at 351 USD (82W TDP).
In the lower spectrum things do not change that much but the 2.8 GHz Core i5 760 obviously was introduced, it's price will be 205 USD.
Two Pentium processors E6600 and E5500 will each drop roughly 105 in price to 75 and 64 USD respectively.
Last but not least, good news for server admins and overclockers, the 2.93 GHz Xeon X3470 at a 95W TDP will drop a staggering 44% in price from 589 USD towards 328 USD.
