Intel slashes desktop processor prices
Cheaper PCs ahoy!
Intel pruned its processor prices earlier this week, as anticipated. The cuts include knocking 38 per cent off the price of the Core 2 Quad and up to 40 per cent off Core 2 Duo CPUs.
Intel also reduced what it charges for its remaining Pentium D chips - remember them? - by as much as 37 per cent.
The price cuts centred on the chip giant's desktop products - mobile Core 2 Duo prices remained unchanged, for example, though a couple of Celeron Ms are now cheaper to buy than they were last week.
But don't forget the mobile Core 2 Duo line is due for a major revamp early next month when Intel debuts 'Santa Rosa', the next generation of its Centrino platform.
