Posted on Monday, August 30 2010 @ 15:17:13 CEST by

Intel made some changes to its processor lineup, the chip giant added a couple of new chips and gave the Core i7 950 a massive 48 percent price cut $294, while reducing the price of the Xeon W3550 from $387 to $294.

Six new chips were added to Intel's lineup, including a the Core i5 560, a new dual-core chip with a 3.33GHz clockspeed. Interestingly, this chip is listed for $138, the same price as the somewhat slower Core i5 550. Other new desktop CPUs include the Pentium E6800 (3.33GHz) and E5700 (3.0GHz), two new budget dual-core processors that will be available for $86 and $75, respectively. There's also an addition to the Celeron series with the E3500, a $52 dual-core chip with a 2.7GHz clockspeed.

The server market received the new six-core W3670, a 3.2GHz chip with 12MB L2 cache and a $855 price tag, and additionally, Intel also added the Atom N550 to its price list. This new dual-core chip was announced last week, it runs at 1.5GHz but with a price tag of $86 it's a quite expensive netbook processor.
