Intel Plan To Further Cut Pricing On Core 2 Range

| Posted: May 17, 2007 3:09 am

Good news for those of you in the market for a Core 2 upgrade, if you can hold out until July 22 there's some more slashing being done across all of their Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad CPUs; There was a nice price drop on April 22 so this next one will occur a mere 3 months later.

 

HKEPC has compiled a chart which not only shows the new pricing as of July 22, but also some new chips that will enter the Core 2 lineup. The information comes from various motherboard manufacturers in Taiwan and China.

 

 

Though AMD plan to release their new K10 (Phenom) family a little later down the track, this aggressive move from Intel would be with all intent to keep the pressure on and maintain their dominance.

 

Full details here folks.

 


While AMD AM2+ processors are due out in Q3, Intel announced another plan on price reduction just 3 months after the previous drop on April 22. With a remarkable cut at 50%, AMD is facing another harsh battle with Intel.

 

As reported before, Intel has had hinted a price drop in Q3, expecting a second price drop someday in August and September. However, the exact date turns out surprisingly on July 22 as the first hand information we have received. Undoubtedly, the move give certain impact on the sales of AMD processors. Not until the release of next-generation AM2+ processors, it's hard for AMD to get profit from their existing products.
