Intel To Lower Quad Core To Dual Core Pricing In Q3

Intel is going to shave off around 70% off their Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.4GHz, 1066FSB) price in Q3, pushing Quad Core into the mainstream by second half of this year. The current price for Q6600 stood at $ 851 and Intel is going to lower it to $ 530 on Apr 22nd. By Q3, Intel is going to further push down the price of Q6600 to $ 266 and incidentally, it will be priced similarly to a Core 2 Duo E6850 (3GHz, 1333FSB). Certainly, it will be more worth it to get a Q6600 than a E6850. Intel also plans to release a higher clocked Q6700 (2.66GHz, 1066FSB) at $ 530 and a QX6800 (2.93GHz, 1066FSB) replacing QX6700 in the $ 999 price point of the Extreme Edition segment in Q3.
