Intel decided to drastically cut its prices yesterday on 22nd of July and effectively the new prices should start to showing up as of today. These are distributors’ prices so you can expect a few more bucks on the retail price in your favourite store.
QX6850 the top of the hill that we reviewed here will cost $970 and you will have to pay exactly the same for FSB 1066 QX6800. This means that QX6800 price will drop from $1170 in July to $970 as of yesterday.
X6800 with 4 MB dual core, 965 and 955 previous Extreme editions will remain priced at $970 but they will be retired any day now so we doubt you will be able to buy them.
