Default Intel cuts its prices across the board in Q3/07

They start off with the Quad cores, but also Dual cores and Xeons get their prices cut :
"Intel has scrapped plans for the quad-core 2.13 GHz Core 2 Quad Q6400, but instead added plans for a quad-core 2.66 GHz Q6700. However, Intel's guidance will cut the price of the Q6600 and the Q6700 dramatically -- Intel will cut the price of the Q6600 to a more discounted price than the Q6400 was ever expected to launch at.

I didn't need a new cpu but come Q4 maybe I'll get rid of my by then granny-FX-53, an overclocked quad core at 3+ghz is nothing to sneeze at

E6750 2.66 GHz 4MB 1333 MHz for 183$ looks like a winner to me

Yup, unbeatable with the knowledge we have today... only downside is the multiplier of "only" 8.

I'm really starting to wonder if Intel is starting to be afraid of AMD's new line-up (do they have pre-knowledge ?), or if they just intend to drive them out of the market...

the 8 multi is only 1 short of the current 6600 and 4300 Multiplier


I think Intel indeed wants to kill or at least cripple AMD.

I've already read in two places up to 40% higher interger performance going from Kentsfield to Agena. Granted one source was AMD themselves, but they usually aren't the type to make those numbers up from what I know.
