It is one of that time of the year again, when Intel decides to reduce those mean and nasty high price tags on CPU’s and reduce them so that, a bit more of the “tech” population may afford it.
The new comers, in the list is the six-core Gulftown Core i7-970 that is priced at $899 at Newegg (and $855 as the figures of its quantities are still in the 1,000). Another new addition is the Core i7- 870 which is a Quad Core, bearing 8 threads. Another new addition is the i5-750 which is also a Quad Core with 4 threads.
The most price cut has been seen of the Core i7-870’s, that fell from $562 to $294. Here is a table to sum up all those price cuts. Thanks to TechPowerup.
