No Plans to Lower Quad-Core Pricing by Intel
Even though there are not a lot of single-core chips in Intelís microprocessor lineup now, quad-core processors are not going to become really affordable soon enough. After Intel introduces its new 45nm central processing units in January, 2008, the company will not cut pricing of its Intel Core 2 Quad below $266.
The new code-named Yorkfield processors, which will be sold under Intel Core 2 Quad trademark with Q9550, Q9450 and Q9300 model numbers, will be priced at $530, $316 and $266 in 1000-unit quantities, respectively. Intel will also not cease to offer its 65nm quad-core microprocessors Q6700 and Q6600 for $530 and $266, respectively. The newer chips are projected to deliver considerably higher performance compared to predecessors thanks to improved micro-architecture, higher-speed processor system busses and cache sizes.

Intel may be the best when it comes to fabbing silicon chips, but they aren't outside the laws of physics. $266 Q6600 is $133 per "C2D inside" not counting extra fabbing costs incured.
The E4600 will be $133 at launch... Q6600 is two E4600's but with 2x the L2 cache.
