Intel Processor Price Cuts for July 2010

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 11 comments

Check out the latest prices.

It's one of our favorite times of the year – CPU price cuts! Intel has updated it processor price list, and there are new models introduced and some older ones getting a price reduction.

Check out Intel's price listing page here, or if you want to go directly to the updated pricing list in PDF, click here.

Notably new in the list is the six-core Gulftown Core i7-970 that hit Newegg at $899 (but is listed at $885, but don't forget that figure is in 1,000 unit quantities). Also new is the Core i7-870s (quad-core, 8 threads) and the i5-750 (quad-core, 4 threads).

With the 82W Core i7-870s coming in, the older 95W Core i7-870 gets a considerable price cut, falling by almost half, from $562 to $294. TechPowerUp has done us all a huge favor and composed a summary table that lists all the updated CPU listings:

    phew!

    i5-760 = (i5-750 + 133Mhz) = $200

    no change there. I just bought an i5-750 so I was about to go ballistic.

    nah it justs shows you that they have recoverd the money from there r&d in that area

    and as such they are generous enough to cut the cost off the product for the consumer now they have made back there money (unlike apple)

    Even with the price cuts, AMD still gets honors for best bang for the buck.

    well, actually itels cpu's are more efficent

    at the minute a good quad core is all you will need becasue for give me if im mistake but little or no programs can take full support of a 6 core cpu yet

    though i will admit amd is better for budget builsders becasue of upgradability

    The i7 970 is just a joke. OK I understand not pricing it low enough to run with the 960 and cannibalise quad-core sales, but to only be a hundred bucks cheaper than the 980X is just retarded. Nobody will buy it.

    Besides, the 980X is already the same price as the 975 so it's not like Intel aren't already competing their Extreme models anyway.

    Just stupid.

    Looks like 6-core Thuban sales is taking too much market share from Intel's best quadcore i7s so Intel had to make the cuts?
