Intel makes the Quad Core even cheaper: the current price cuts are said to push the Q6600 down to $193. The shop prices already reacted to this development.
Intel lowers the prices of the Q6600 and three Dual Core CPUs.
Techconnect reports, that the prices of the E8500, E8400 and E7200 will be reduced, too. While the E8500 drops from $266 to $186 (31%), the E8400 now costs $163. The E7200 will be sold for $113.
One will have to wait if AMD reacts to those price cuts and lowers the costs of their own CPUs.
