Intel slashes Xeon, Core 2 Duo prices

Not open for further replies.

A week after trumpeting a healthy second quarter profit leap, Intel has slashed the prices of several server and desktop processors.

Most notably, the price of the top-of-line Core 2 Duo - the 3.1GHZ E8500 - dropped from $266 to $183, a 31 per cent plunge. The slightly slower E8400 also received a cut, an 11 per cent drop from $183 to $163. And at the lower end of the Core 2 Duo line, Intel lopped 15 per cent from the price of the E7200, a 2.53GHz chip with a 3M L2 cache and a 1066MHz front side bus.

thanks for the news mate,i will wait for amd to cut the price now...want to up my x2 3600.
i think i might be able to get a better one for 2k or so.


Finally ultimate gaming procy (E8500) has hit $183. In India it might cost 9k a 4k drop from 13k in Hyd. Hopefully even Q9450 will also drop to a more affordable 10.5k.
