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.

$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.

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 !
