Default Intel to lower Santa Rosa CPU prices by over 30% in 3Q: Digitimes

Notebook manufacturers are only just now gearing up to start putting these things in their notwbooks and the prices are already rumored to be getting slashed in the near future. They're out to kill some gryphons.


Intel will lower prices of Santa Rosa-series high-end CPUs by more than 30% in the third quarter and the move will stimulate the next wave of notebook replacement demand, according to sources at notebook makers.
Intel plans to lower prices of its T7500 and T7700 by almost 24% and 32%, respectively, the sources noted.
In the meantime, the company will roll out its highest-end X7900, high-end T7800 and entry-level T7250 CPUs, with the T7250 to be priced at US$210 per thousand units, the sources added.
After hitting the market in the beginning of May, the Santa Rosa platform did not promote strong demand to replace existing notebooks in the end user-market, the sources said. Newly-released notebooks supporting the platform mostly incorporate entry-level CPUs such as T7100 and T7300 while very few adopted the T7700, the sources explained.
At the end of the fourth quarter, Santa Rosa is expected to account for nearly 80% of Intel's overall product line up, the sources said.
