While Intel reportedly is gearing for a launch of its quad-core processors on
Monday next week, a wide range of etailers has begun pre-selling or even selling
the Core 2 Extreme QX6700 processor. A 1000-unit price of $ 1000 and a very
limited availability indicated a scenario of potentially inflated etail pricing
of the CPU. TG Daily has checked the currently listed Etail prices over about
two dozen websites range from $ 1020 to $ 1218, with an average price of $ 1167
across the board. Dell will charge a $ 1234 premium for the quad-core CPU over a
Core 2 Duo E6300 dual-core processor. Nevertheless some lucky early birds in our
forums have enjoyed the limited one-time
QX6700 pre-order
special
at price less than US$ 1000.
