Intel to slash Q6600 and Q8200 pricing next month

The restructured pricing will affect both Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad processors, with price cuts of up to $20. Intel’s hugely-popular 2.4GHz Core 2 Quad Q6600 is expected to drop from $193 to $183, and the 2.3GHz Core 2 Quad Q8200 will take its place at $193 – down from $224.

On the dual-core front, Intel’s 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo E7300 will fall from $133 to $113, and be joined by a new 2.8GHz Core 2 Duo E7400 part.

They aren’t the biggest of price cuts, but we can expect Core 2 prices to continue dropping as Core i7 draws near. If you aren’t planning a Core i7 upgrade this Christmas, it could be an opportune moment to pick up a Core 2 processor on the cheap.
