Intel drops Sandy Bridge CPU prices

Written by Nick Farell

Cheaper than chips

Chipzilla has dropped its mates a Christmas card telling them that it will cut the price of  Sandy Bridge-based processors. It is looking like some Core i3 and i5 series processors to see a drop of 10-15 per cent.

According to Digitimes which has been chatting with notebook makers since Intel is set to announce its next-generation Ivy Bridge-based processor in April of 2012, the company is hoping the price reduction could stimulate the market demand. Lenovo, Asustek Computer and Acer have already dropped their Core i5-2430 equipped notebook model to below US$659 and Core i3-equipped models have also fallen in price.

Vendors will be expected to hack about the prices of the first-generation Core i5-based ultrabooks to US$799-899 in January of 2012 to empty the inventory and prevent these machines killing off the next generation ultrabooks. Next-generation 22nm Ivy Bridge-based processors including Core i5-3450, Core i7-3370, are expected to be priced between $184-332, which are only 10-15 more than some of Intel's existing CPUs. 

So Chipzilla really has to get the Sandy Bridge inventory out of its warehouse before it kills off its newer platform.

He's just doing this on purpose, I think he owns AMD CPU and GPU but he likes to provoke everyone.
Just ignore him.

How silly, no competition mean Intel control the market and that mean user pay more than before for even a slight bump in speed. I love and buy Intel but I always see AMD as an innovator and keep Intel on its feet.

No you're wrong competition will always be there AMD or no AMD...now even more so coz Windows is going on ARM. If Intel relax now they're finished lucky for them they have market advantage & don't blame me if AMD is out of business they shot themselves in the foot by launching a turd server CPU which no server people want for the desktop.

Yes I own AthlonIIX4 635 & HD6670 GPU with SB760/SB710 chipset. Now in October I bought i3-2100 & H67 Intel board & I has SSD since AMD build. This i3 rig screams I got sad many days & changed & put my AMD board for Intel in & out 8-10 times but now I've seen light for the lies AMD has said & how much underperforming things they have thanks to this guy http://scalibq.wordpress.com/2009/10/26/are-all-amd-fans-idiots/

And I will try to spread the light on everyone

You said it, Life's bigger than everything right? Then why do people still post saying I'm happy with what my Phenom II @ 3 GHz when they lie to themselves knowing they're using a PoS which is destroying Planet Earth's resources by using more power. Why not help save the planet by using efficient i3 with Hyper Threading which blows the pants off any QuadCore AMD in real-world secnario. Life's bigger than 40 or 60 fps? Right?? ;-)

Yes I understands now I'm buying FX-6100 on Monday. 8)

Little Help please, what do I do? I don't think buying FX-6100 for a SB710/760G chipset is good idea. Board I have is Gigabyte 78LMT-S2P. I tell you what I can do. Option 1 - I stick too my current gigabyte board + Athlon II X4 635 CPU & upgrade too HD7770 in February. Option 2 - I stick to my Intel DH67BL board + i3-2100 CPU & upgrade to HD7770 later. Option 3 - I get MSI A75 FM1 socket board + A6-3500 APU. Then upgrade too A6-3670K & HD7770 later when they launch in my country. Option 4 - Wait for socket FM2 & Pildriver. Options 1,2,4 give best money saving which is important to me. Help please I'm using Intel but I don't feel so good I tried to abuse AMD online but that didn't help either, I like AMD products a lot. I'm very confused past 4 months since I bought Intel...
