Intel cuts processor prices

Posted on Monday, January 19 2009 @ 20:25:19 CET by

As expected, Intel cut prices of its Core 2, Pentium Dual-Core, Celeron and Xeon processor series. CNET reports the Q9650 reduced a 40 percent price drop, but it was the mobile Celeron 570 which received the largest price cut of a whopping 48 percent.
Cuts were concentrated on quad-core chips like the Q9650 (3.00GHz), reduced 40 percent, to $316 from $530. But Celeron processors received some of the largest reductions. The mobile Celeron 570 (2.00GHz), was slashed 48 percent, to $70 from $134, for example.

Some Xeon processors also received hefty cuts. The price on the X3370 (3.00GHz), for instance, was cut 40 percent to $316 from $530. The Pentium dual-core E5200 was reduced 24 percent to $64 from $84.
Additionally, Intel also introduced five new processors. This includes the $133 Core 2 Duo E7500 (2.93GHz) and $84 Pentium Dual Core E5400 (2.8GHz) but there are also three new energy-efficient quad-core processors. This includes the Q9550s, Q9400s and Q8200s - these chips cost significantly more than their counterparts without the "s" suffix but they feature a 65W TDP instead of 95W. You can check the full price list over here but The Tech Report made a handy table to compare the new and old prices of the desktop parts:
