Thumbs up Intel CPU price cuts

Over the weekend Intel reduced prices on some selected chips up to 31%
I'm surprised the price for QX9775 (3.2GHz) $1,499 was not reduced since Nehalem should be out in few weeks or is it maybe few months?

Intel has cut processor prices up to 31 percent, though overall cuts are limited in number and degree.
The quad-core Q6600 was cut from $224 to $193

The desktop Core 2 Duo E8500 (3.16GHz) got the largest cut, from $266 to $183 (31 percent) on the new pricing list, dated July 20.

The next biggest price reduction was the desktop Core 2 Duo E7200 (2.53GHz), reduced 15 percent, from $133 to $113.

Other price cuts include the popular quad-core Q6600 (2.4GHz). It drops 14 percent, from $224 to $193. The desktop Core 2 Duo E8400 (3GHz) falls 11 percent, from $183 to $163.

Xeon server processors also saw price cuts. The X3220 (2.40GHz) was cut 12 percent, from $224 to $198. The X3210 (2.13GHz) saw an identical cut, while the E3110 (3GHz) was reduced 11 percent, from $188 to $167.

The pricing for QX "Extreme" processors, such as the QX9775 (3.2GHz, $1,499), remains unchanged from the pricing list published on July 15, when the Centrino 2 mobile processors were introduced.

price drop on q6600 is not that great, for the past 2+ months it was available in few stores for 199.

Since the price was reduced by Intel it will show further reductions in retail sales prices. At least on new stock.

Intel has time. They had quite a few problems and delays with Centrino 2 and Nehalem is a big change, I'm sure they don't want to rush things and run into problems again.
I think the same, but hate to wait so much longer. With your rig you don't have the same problem.
Or should I say any problem.

Still waiting for the Q9650 to come out and cause another round o' price-cuts to roll down on the Q9550/Q9450.

The Q9650 might show up as the Q9645. I've read both ways, but by either nomenclature it is definately the same as the QX9650 but with a locked multiplier.

Intel never drops prices on their Extreme processors. They will just be discontinued. For example, the one year old QX6850 is still over $1000 at newegg.
