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.

Q6700 2.66 GHz 8MB1066 MHz
$530
Q6600 2.40 GHz 8MB 1066 MHz
$266

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. ClubIT, Mwave, Newegg and ZipZoomFly have the processors listed below $300. However, Newegg has already sold out of Core 2 Quad Q6600 processors.

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.

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.

Thing is CC, this place IS a joke and hardly anyone takes it seriously (I don't and if I don't there are others that don't). I come here for the entertainment value. The flaming and ignorance are rampant and I (and some friends) find it quite hilarious. Hell, I even let my friends post under my name just to stir the pot! It's an unmoderated, open forum. What do you expect? Civil discussions? Facts? Please!!!

Occasionally, someone show up that's CLEARLY well informed and well studied but that is RARE and those people STILL get flamed! This place is a joke and I treat it as such.

I don't disagree with you BUT like I said, useful and informed is rare here. It's mostly filled with flaming and misinformation.

I honestly don't see a lot of flaming. Maybe I tuned it out. But I do find myself reading these threads for very long stretches of time. I only do so cause I find them interesting to read. I don't take any humor value out of DT.

Your view is childish and selfish. This is not an unmoderated forum, it is a mostly user-moderated forum. The ability of this forum to basically self-regulate depends to a large extent on the integrity of the ratings system. People creating multiple accounts like you did and using them to manipulate the ratings system detract from the overall quality of the DT web site. Basically the quality of the DT site is what we make it, especially considering that >80% of the content is user-created.

Maybe so but that's part of the joke here. Anyone can come here and do this and I'm 100% certain that I'm not the only one. Hell, you could be doing it too for all I know and using me to distract the multitude of others from their daily flamings of your posts. And I'm sure you will take this opportunity to single me out and use me as a warning to others.

Registering several usernames to manipulate the rating system is childish. Using those same registrations to spoof support is pathetic. Truly.

Are you as big a loser in your personal life as you are on these forums?

Your actions do not agree with your statements. You continue to defend yourself. The fact that you take the time to do this shows you value the opinion of others reading here. If you think this place is a joke, then show it and stop posting.

Loser.

You need games for your console-without games your console is worthless!

Similarly whats DT site without the posters.

I am of the opinion that the very fact it is an open forum & unmoderated as you say,then it becomes a sort of a challenge for each one of us to make it a unique site-responsible/respectable/rich in contents/informative/etc without any supervision

A forum to exchange ideas/opinions/viewpoints in an decent, intelligent manner.

Its in our capacity & responsibility to shape it !

A site is rated not only by the quality of articles put up for discussion,but also the quality of comments that it recieves in response.


You say-The flaming and ignorance are rampant

These are guys who seek attention for themselves through such comments,thats their motive & intentions.

You find them in almost every site ! nothing new indeed.

Plus you have hot heads looking for an outlet to let off their pent up frustrations etc.

If there is a collective response from all on the site to-
simply ignore them & not respond to them they will simply move on to another site .

I think you are very capable of making some very constructive comments without resorting to those tactics.

A little bit of seriousness on your part could change your attitudes.

Give it a try !
