Intel, the worlds leading computer processor manufacturer, has announced changes to the pricing of some of their existing models, in addition to releasing new processors.
Already present in Intel’s catalogue, the desktop quad-core 3.06 GHz Core i7-950 and server quad-core 3.06 GHz Xeon X3550 processors will now cost 294 dollars down from 562 dollars and 294 dollars down from 387 dollars respectively.
New arrivals, the dual-core 2.7 GHz Celeron E3500, 3 GHz Pentium E5700, 3.3 GHz Pentium E6800 and 3.33 GHz Core i3-560 processors have also been unveiled at the respective prices of 52, 75, 86 and 138 dollars. Also new, the dual-core 1.5 GHz Atom N550 and hex-core 3.2 GHz Xeon W3670 processors will cost 86 and 885 dollars.
These prices are of course applied per thousand units, although it will provide an idea about the end users cost when either purchasing just the CPU or a complete machine.
