Intel about to drop pricing on nine Sandy Bridge desktop CPUs

Pity the more popular ones like the 2500 and 2600K is not affected...

It's been discovered today that Intel is planning to shave pricing on several of its current Sandy Bridge desktop CPUs next month.

 

The drop looks to be consistently around about $10 on all nine models, which are the dual-core Intel Pentium G630 and G850, dual-core Core i3-2120 and i7-2390T, and quad-core Core i5-2400S, i5-2405S, i5-2500S, i5-2500T, and i7-2600S.

Unfortunately, where most of us would've been especially wanting to see cuts on the more popular enthusiast models such as the i5-2500, i5-2500K, i7-2600 and i7-2600K, they are not mentioned in the list.

 

All but three of the processors in the list will see cuts in September, while the two Pentium dual core models and the i3-2120 will drop in price in October.
