Intel is expected to cut prices of its quad-core Xeon 3200 series and dual-core Xeon 3000 series processors in April, to boost demand.
It will also introduce new 1-way targeted chipsets in the second half of the year, but will hold off releasing new processors based on 45nm technology until 2008.

The Quad-Core Xeon X3220 is expected to drop from US$851 to US$530, while the X3210 will be cut from US$690 to US$423, say the vendors, both decreases of close to 40%. Prices for Dual-Core Xeon 3040, 3050, 3060 and 3070 CPUs are also set to fall between 10-40%, add the sources.

These two processor series will form the basis of Intel's 1-way lineup throughout 2007 and early 2008 with 45nm-based CPUs, dual-core (Wolfdale) and quad-core (Yorkfield) processors, scheduled to join the market in the first quarter 2008, the sources revealed.
