Sandy Bridge Price Drop
 
Just saw this on PCPER. A whole $11 to $12 drop on some CPU and introduction of low end CPU as well.

11 wont do much,but hey

was that because of ivy or dozer or both? :)

$11? That's it?

Well, I guess it's better than nothing. Certainly isn't going to influence me to go out and buy a new one.

Doesn't Intel usually do another round of cut just before a new CPU type is release? Noticed that none of the discount apply toward the K or regular model so it's more or less moot for me personally. Also, what's the T model for?

If you guys live near a microcenter store, you can pick up SB for uber cheap. I got my i5 2500k for 174$, 194$ with tax, that's 35$ cheaper than the 230-240 (after tax)$ they were going at elsewhere.

The T model is essestialy an underclocked version with a lower TDP.

I think this pretty much confirms it: Intel isn't afraid of Bulldozer AT ALL.

uh nope

Intel Reports Record Year and Record Fourth Quarter

look at the net income , was 11.7 billion compared with 4.3 billion the year before

they can afford to drop processor prices if they want to

which means something in terms of performance and so on would you maybe perhaps say? :)
