Intel announces price cut of up to 50% on desktop parts.

Intel logoIntel has tweaked its processor price list, cutting up to 50 per cent off what it charges for desktop CPUs.

The big reduction came to the 2.66GHz Core 2 Quad Q6700, which now costs $266, down from $530. The 2.4GHz Q6600 is also cheaper now: down 16 per cent to $224. For those of you not in the know, the Q6700 part is an overclocking monster thanks to its 10x multiplier.

The other big reduction was applied to the 3GHz Core 2 Duo E6850, which had 31 per cent taken off its price, bringing it from $266 to $183.

I guess it’s time to hit newegg.
