    The source is Intel itself, and those are the expected drops in the price INTEL charges from resellers. There's no obligation the resellers will pass those price drops on to the consumers, however, due to agressive competition, they most often have to. Sometimes, due to offer constraints or unexpected high demand, it takes a few weeks for prices to settle down.

    Re: Holy Crap! Amd Major Price Cut Due To Intel Cut Coming???

    Let me ask u guys something. A work server running:
    Intel Xeon 3.4GHz dual core
    3.5GB Ram
    RAID 6
    windows server 2003

    Is the fastest thing i have ever run. Is it all that memory? What is a comparable desktop setup that does not use a server CPU? For AMD and Intel.

    Cool Re: Holy Crap! Amd Major Price Cut Due To Intel Cut Coming???

    I bought my E6600 over two months ago at the egg and paid only $309.00 with no shipping, back then, nothing enticing about those prices.

    I don't know the current rates,but if they are close to 3 cdn = 2 US, or even 4:3, these prices are indeed quite lower than previous ones.

    EDIT: Sorry dan, reply meant for PowerHungry. I'm a slow typist.

    I added the cdn text in bold so there is no misunderstanding. I don't think the intel price cuts are that good at all. I had read the e4300 would be $110US and the E6600 $224US.

    The E6420 and quad core will be the ones to look at though.

    Isn't a tad early for the Intel Duo Core price cuts? I thought Monday we would "might" start to see something. I'll look on Newegg early next week & hope see something positive.

    Wow..That's positive! E6600 for $235.00! Looks like the E6700 will take a little longer to come down. Same price as an AMD X2 6000+ which I bought last week.

    Re: Holy Crap! Amd Major Price Cut Due To Intel Cut Coming???

    Yeah the pricing is really getting crazy, now if only video cards would follow memory and cpu prices and we would all be building crazy computers.

    I also noticed the zzf recently got the q6600's back in stock at $559 shipped with a free copy of Supreme Commander, add a $1.99 to upgrade to 2nd day air I guess I'll have myself a q6600 and new game to tinker with next week.

    Guess I'll find out how well it runs AutoGK for converting my DVD library to divx for my home theater build.

    I think this processor should hold me over until K10 and Penryn fever hits later in the year and I need my next fix.
