If you were hoping for another processor price-drop from Intel, you might have to wait a little longer. Intel’s latest processor price-list shows no move in any quarter.
Late in August we saw a massive reduction in the cost of the i7 950, then in mid-October we saw a drop in the price of the i3 processor. But this month’s processor price-list reveals no such niceties. With next year’s Sandy Bridge processors on the horizon, it might be January 5, 2011 (or later) before Intel revise the current i3/5/7 range of CPUs.
