    • On October 19, Core 2 Quad Q8200, Q6600, Core 2 Duo E7300, and Pentium E2220 and E2200 will face price-cuts.
    • On the same day, Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 launches, priced at US$133 (in 1000 unit tray quantities).
    • On November 30, Intel will launch Core 2 Quad Q8300 (2.50 GHz, 2+2 MB L2 cache, priced at $224), Pentium E5300 (2.60 GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, priced at $86) and Celeron E1500 (2.20 GHz, 512 KB L2, priced at $53)
    • January 18, 2009 will see the launch of Core 2 Duo E7500 (2.93 GHz, priced at $133 to replace E7400).
    • On the same day, Q8200 gets price cuts from $193 to $183,Pentium E5200 from $84 to $76, Pentium E2220 from $84 to $64 and Celeron E1400 from $54 to $43.

    Another important bit is that Core i7 series processors and X58 based motherboards would launch officially in November. The CPU lineup is expected to expand in 2009.

    Wow, Q6600 still isn't going to die.

    IMO, if you bought this on July 22nd 2007 like I did when it was $330, it was probably one of the best investments you would of made.

    This thing goes at 3.6ghz, no sweat, nice temps, nice voltage, and can rival any of the new 45nm processors too.

    Why would you kill a CPU that's been so successful, so many guys I know are running Q6600's, they're awesome CPU's

    Hopefully it'll bring it back to the retail price it was just before the economy went 'tits up' <$200

    Could the price cuts correlate to even crapper clocking chips...? :Paranoid: (talking about the Q6600 of course)

    Seriously though, My Q6600 is overclocked to 3.6ghz (Water cooling ofcourse) and my computer is QUICK as. I don't see the point in buying a new CPU like these when you won't actually notice a performance change (unless you do 3D mark, which is ONLY a "benchmark")

    But not everyone has a Q6600 at 3.6GHz. I'm aiming for an upgrade when Nehalem is released, and I'm pretty sure that I'll see a huge performance increase (from a Pentium-D at 2.66GHz to a Core i7 at the same clock speed).

    Intel doesn't expect people like yourself to upgrade; they expect people who have somewhat older, slower systems to buy the new hardware.

    oow yummy.

    Makes me wanting to upgrade from my ol Pentium 4 3.2GHz Prescott even more. Id certainly be investing in building a whole system though so its not just the CPU.
