Default $183 Core 2 Quad Q8400 (2.66Ghz) Coming April 19 and price cuts!

The first set will come on April 19. That's when Intel will roll out a $183 Core 2 Quad Q8400 clocked at 2.66GHz, hand-in-hand with a lower-power Q8400S version. Price cuts will come, too, but don't get too excited—DigiTimes says they'll only apply to the now long-in-the-tooth Core 2 Quad Q9300 and low-power derivatives of current Core 2 Quads. These "S" models have 65W power envelopes, down from 95W on the regular quads.

On May 31, DigiTimes claims Intel will follow up with a 3.33GHz Core i7-975 and 3.06GHz Core i7-950 priced at a respective $999 and $562. At the low end, you can look forward to a $133 Core 2 Duo E7600 and a couple of new sub-$100 chips. Interestingly, the list of cuts doesn't mention any changes to current Core i7s, even though the two aforementioned chips will purportedly have the same prices as the existing i7-965 and i7-940. Maybe Intel will just swap them out.
