The Inquirer also heard Intel has planned to cut the prices of its desktop processors on April 22:
The E6700 will drop in price from $530 to $316, the E6600 will fall from $316 to $224, Intel will introduce a 2.13GHz 4MB cache E6420 at $183, and that will spell the end of the 2MB E6400 part, which falls in price from $224 to $183. Intel will also introduce a 1.86GHz, 1066MHz 4 E6320 at $163.

Meanwhile the absurdity of Intel's re-branding will come with the addition of an Intel Core 2 Quad processor 3 Series chipset to support the Intel Core 2 Quad processor. With all these twos, duos and quads it's little wonder that Intel sales executives have to go touting for business with a crib card so they can understand what they're selling.
Some price cuts from AMD are also expected sometime soon.
