1333 MHz front-side bus processors
at low price points, but held off price cuts for existing processors
until July 22

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

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

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.

This is EXACTLY what I'm talking about. This place is a joke.
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.
