Default New C2Ds, what'll become of the old ones?

July 22nd Intel is gonna introduce the new 1333 MHz FSB Core 2s. And at outrageously low prices. (Example: C2D E6850 3 GHz for $266). But what's gonna happen to the 1066 MHz FSB models? Will they drop in price as well, remain where they are or be discontinued? The X6800 is still $999 and obviously a much less attractive option than the $266 E6850.

Why would intel introduce one of their flagship products at a measly $266? That just doesn't make sense. They could sell it for triple that amount and make a killing off of it.

That's what has me baffled. Is this some kind of defense against AMDs upcoming lineup? I mean, I'm gonna swap my E6600 for the E6850 if this turns out to be true. (Or the Q6600 which also is gonna sell at $266).

Attached is the July 22nd price list.

Intel's top of the line wont sell at $266. I have no idea where you got such an idea. But, the price cut will be drastic none-the-less i.e. a Q6600 for only $266. Not bad at all.

But their top of the line parts should still be going for over $500, and then on down from there.

Care to provide a link where it says Intel's high-end parts will go for only $266? Or was this just an assumption on your part? Either way, it contradicts everything I've heard thus far. Linkage please.

The pic I attached, plus this article. Of course, I'm not completely oblivious to the fact that it could be false. It's just that is has been repeated so many other places, and nobody has come forward to disprove it. (that I've seen)

Generally they have been nearly spot on with their pricing. Plus with Penryn coming very soon I just don't think the 6850 would be labeled as the extreme model. I'm betting we see higher end models stock clocked at 3.0GHz-3.6GHz.

I'm amazed that some of the ppl posting in this thread didn't know about these price-cuts before. They've been around for a while.

They have been verified by many ppl, and personally I've asked an Intel rep and he verified it. Personally I can't wait till July 22nd to get my Q6600

Well, that's good to hear. I was pretty sure about the quad core cut, but the Duo prices had me a bit puzzled. But as mentioned, the transition to 45nm Penryns and the upcoming AMD offerings could prompt Intel to introduce CPUs at very attractive price points.

Just curious why would Intel introduce the E6550 and the E6540 at the same price?

Well I haven't paid much attention to the dual-core prices. But you are right they look very inexpensive. I've been focusing on the quad-core prices.

If this holds out true, I'm not going to complain.
