Intel Cuts Prices on Core 2 Duos

Intel Cuts Prices on Core 2 Duos

by , 12:40 PM EDT, April 24th, 2007

Intel has cut the price on its mainstream Core 2 Duo chips up to 40 percent over the weekend, according to ExtremeTech. The Quad-core processor price was also reduced.

The 2.66 GHz (E6700) Core 2 Duo is now priced at US$316, a 40 percent cut. The 2.4 GHz (E6600) and 2.13 GHz (E6400) were also reduced to $224 and and $183 respectively. The Intel chart on these processors is on their Website.

In addition, Intel cut the price on its Quad-core Q6600 by 38 percent. The new price is US$530.

This is good news for Apple customers, but the move is probably designed to put more pressure on AMD as well as prepare for the next generation Penryn CPUs due later this year.
