July 22 has arrived and Core 2 Quad Q6600s for under $300
Intel last week released a new lineup of
1333 MHz front-side bus processors
at low price points, but held off price cuts for existing processors
until July 22
. The day has arrived and Intel price cuts for existing Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad processors are going into effect at various retailers.
Intel Core 2 Quad
Intel’s star for this round of price cuts is the quad-core Core 2 Quad Q6600. The price cut cuts the Core 2 Quad Q6600 price in half to $266 per processor, in 1,000-unit quantities, from the existing $530 price. The Core 2 Quad Q6600 is the only sub-$300 quad-core processor available on the market. Intel has positioned the Core 2 Quad Q6700, which launched last week, at the $530 price point.
Retailers have adjusted prices of the Core 2 Quad Q6600 accordingly. A quick search for the processor at online retailers shows prices starting at $275.
have the processors listed below $300. However, Newegg has already sold out of Core 2 Quad Q6600 processors.
Intel Core 2 Duo
The price cuts also affect
Core 2 Duo E4000-sequence
processors. Intel’s Core 2 Duo E4400 drops $20 to $113 to make way for a new Core 2 Duo E4500. The new Core 2 Duo E4500 debuts at a $133 price point with a 200 MHz clock speed advantage.
Intel Quad Core Xeon UP
If the $266 price tag is still a bit too steep, Intel plans to cut prices of its
Xeon processor lineup in August
. The Xeon price cuts affect
quad-core Xeon UP and MP
processors. The Intel quad-core Xeon processor lineup includes a 2.13 GHz X3210. Intel plans to drop the price on the Xeon X3210 to $224 come August.

And even with doing that, they picked up only about 0.5% marketshare from Intel during the quarter, after several quarters of marketshare declines.
Considering Intel's current assault of new products and price drops, and AMD's lack of anything new, I can't imagine how Q3 is going to be good for AMD at all.

I'm starting to get worried now that my AMD Socket 939 FX-60 will be the last solely owned AMD CPU i will ever buy again......
Right now, it is just too tempting to move to Intel Quad. I mean US$266 for a Q6600, is just bloody awesome.
I cannot ever imagine AMD in a position to sell that low. Not now, and certainly not in the next 12-24 months.
