Given AMD have had a terrible first quarter this year with a MASSIVE financial loss of around half a billion, Intel are really twisting the knife in the wound having just slashed prices substantially on their Core 2-family as well as silently introducing two more Core 2 Duo processors in the E6320 and E6420, both with 4MB of L2 cache.

Full details incl. new pricing can be found at both the DailyTech and NordicHardware folks.


Intel is set to cut prices for its Core 2 dual and quad-core products next week; however, online retailers have already reduced prices. Under the new pricing structure, Intel offers its Core 2 processors starting at $113 per unit, in 1,000 unit quantities. The quad-core Core 2 Quad Q6600 also drops to a more affordable $530 per unit, in 1,000 unit quantities, price bracket as well.

In addition to the new Q2'2007 price cuts, Intel has also silently launched its lower clocked Core 2 Duo processors with 4MB of L2 cache. The new Core 2 Duo E6320 and E6420 are similar to the E6300 and E6400; however, the E6x20 models feature more L2. Intel prices the new E6x20 models the same as the E6x00 models.
