Intel shaves off pricing on CPUs
Intel today lowered it's prices on several processors. Actually, one of the most popular processors dropped the most, that is great news as the Core 2 Duo E8500 dropped from 266 USD towards a fantastic 183 USD which is roughly 30 percent lower than before.
The slightly slower specced Core 2 Duo E8400 dropped 11% towards 163 USD. Furthermore the Core 2 Duo E7200 and Core 2 Quad both dropped 15 & 14% respectively with 113 USD for the E7200 and 193 USD for the Q6600. and that makes the Q6600 absolutely stunning to purchase !
Next to desktop processors Intel also lower some of the server counterparts. The Xeon X3220 and X3210 dropped 12% to 198 USD. The Xeon E3110 dropped towards 167 USD. These prices are obviously market prices purchased per 1000.
