Intel: Reducing prices in the next few weeks?
According to Fudzilla, the chip giant will lower the CPU prices sometime between July, 20th and August 10th.
If this information is correct, Intel will cut the prices of the E8500, E8400, E7200 and probably some more Core 2 CPUs. So it might be a good idea to wait a little longer, if you plan to upgrade your PC - after all the prices of high-end graphics cards are dropping, too.
