Intel Ivy Bridge to get significantly lower pricing to drive sales?

Posted on Wednesday, February 22 2012 @ 12:49:53 CET by


Electronista reports word is going around that Intel may make up for its Ivy Bridge processor delay by offering the chips at a $60-$70 discount, presumably relative to the current-generation Sandy Bridge chips.
The move could lead to faster processors at similar prices or, more likely, less expensive systems overall.

The cut could be important to everyone, but most of all Windows ultrabook designers eager to get costs down. Many of them are reportedly trying to create a wider price gap between themselves and the MacBook Air and are considering using slower but cheaper hybrid hard drives, where a small solid-state drive exists only as a cache to speed up a traditional rotating hard drive. They may get to under $700 where pure solid-state notebooks are often closer to $1,000.
