Intel Pricedrops Scheduled?

Intel is apparently planning some significant price cuts come April, as well as the introduction of some newer chips for April and June. There will surely be some cheaper goodies amongst the list in the article; new build perhaps?

Are we talking about new chips within the same socket series, or something prehaps new ? hmm same ole socket by the looks of it, just smaller capabilities.

Price drops are always sexeh.

rasta read the article, PV explains what the new chips are

this is definately good news for me, not decided whether to go with one of the budget 1mb cache c2d's though, how much of a performance will I see?

Yeah I picked that up, I was additionally concerned of any releases beyond the present socket set.

Appears to be an announcement just concerning the existing.
