Core i7 950 to drop below US $300

Written by Slobodan Simic

In August

According to the report at HKEPC, Intel will be making quite a few price changes this August. The most eye-catching one is the Core i7 950 which will drop from over US $562 down to US $294, replacing the Core i7 930.

The Core i7 960 working at 3.2GHz will take the place of the 3.06GHz Core i7 950. Both of these CPUs have the same specs except of course for the obvious clock. The same table shows some other novelties, like the new Core i3 560 in the value segment. This one works at 3.33GHz and has the same specs as the Core i3 550 that should drop down to US $117 in October, or few weeks after the introduction of the Core i3 560.

According to the same table, there are additional price changes to the LGA 775 socket processors, including Pentium E6800, E6700, E5700, E5500 and Celeron E3500 and E3400. All of theses will see a price cut in August or October.

Interesting... I thought the 950 was EOL. (It's unavailable on newegg.)

I also just bought the i7 930. Is it worth returning or should I just overclock?

Of course you should overclock your i7 930. Both i7 950 and i7 930 overclock pretty similarly, unless you have cheap low-end motherboard which can't run at high BLCK. In this case 950 would show a little advantage thanks to its higher multiplier.

I'm more concerned about the prices of the i7 860, i7 870 and perhaps the Xeon X3400 series. I wonder what will happen to those.

I've heard that i7 870 will replace i7 860 as soon as i7 880 is released. This means that i7 870 should have i7 860's price. I'm not 100% sure though.

I have been trying to look up news on that product so far nothing. I hope Intel brings it out with a good price and specs.

What motherboard should I pair up with my i7 930 the MSI Big Band Xpower or Asus Rampage 3. I am having a hard time deciding. I plan to overclock and I'm leaning more towards the asus. What do y'all think?
