Intel gives AMD another punch - 70% price drop for Q6600

Posted on Monday, March 12 2007 @ 16:23:49 CET by

This weekend we reported about rough financial times for AMD, and it looks like it won't get much better anytime soon as Intel plans another series of serious price drops for the third quarter of this year.

The chip giant's quad-core Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor will fall in price from $851 to $266 - a 70% price cut!
In the existing plan of price update for Q2, Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 has already experienced a large cut from $851 per 1,000 units shipped to $530 on April 22. As to against its rival AMD’s new processors effectively, Intel has painfully given up the release of Core 2 Quad Q6400 (2.13GHz/4MB L2 x 2/1066MHz FSB) in Q3. Instead, the company decided to make another cut to Core 2 Quad Q6600, where its price would be as low as $266 per 1,000 units shipped. Meaning this new processor would experience a 68.7% accumulative cut of price since its release in March.

In addition, in order to fill in the gap of Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.66GHz, 4MB x 2 L2 Cache、1066MHz FSB), Core 2 Quad Q6700 would be released. The Core 2 Quad Q6700 processor will be priced at $530 per 1,000 units shipped.
