Intel Levies Heavy CPU Price Reductions

Good news, for those of you looking for a better deal in CPUs, came across the wire today from Intel. New price reductions have been announced and one could say they're taking price points down to bargain-basement levels in some spots, with cost savings ranging from 12% to a whopping 50% on the Core 2 Quad Q6700 2.66GHz processor.  This pricing represents major reductions across both 45nm and 65nm CPU families in both their desktop, value and workstation/server lineup.  This move will definitely turn up the burners on rival AMD. Read 'em and weep...
