More Cuts To Core 2 Pricing

Quad core never looked so good

Following the release of their new 1333MHz parts last week, Intel have stuck to their word of slashing prices some more on select Core 2 processors.

The biggest slash was to their Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor, a massive 50% off which pushes it down to just $266. For a quad core chip this is sensational value. The next model up (Q6700) sits at $530. Can't see too many of them selling for the sake of an extra 260MHz core speed.

Also influenced by the cuts is the Core 2 Duo E4000 range, with the E4400 dropping $20 to $113 and the new E4500 chip (200MHz faster than the E4400) debuting at $133.

Dailytech have full details of the price cuts here.

Intel last week released a new lineup of 1333 MHz front-side bus processors at low price points, but held off price cuts for existing processors until July 22. The day has arrived and Intel price cuts for existing Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad processors are going into effect at various retailers.
