Intel brings big price cuts in April

65nm quads cheap as chips

| Posted: Feb 16, 2008 1:27 am

Good news if you're looking to pick up a quad from Intel in the near future; as many of you know a new breed of quad-core processors will enter Intel's Core 2 lineup very soon which comprise 2.5GHz, 2.66GHz, and 2.83GHz models priced at $266, $316, and $530 respectively.

 

So what's happening with the current crop of 65nm quad core chips such as the popular entry level Q6600? Fudzilla report that some very nice price cuts are on the way for these; come April 20 the Core 2 Quad Q6700 will take a huge drop from its current $527 RRP down to just $270.

 

And what about the Q6600? Well, it's drop isn't quite as dramatic, moving down from $270 to $229. But hey, it's a nice shaving nonetheless, and a great opportunity to go the way of quad-core on a budget.

 

For further details on the April 20 price cuts across many of Intel's existing desktop lineup, head over to Fudzilla.
