Intel planning huge price cuts for quad-core server CPUs

By Justin Mann on
In a pre-emptive strike against AMD's Barcelona CPUs, Intel is planning some very hefty price cuts on their quad-core server processors. With cuts ranging from 40% to 60%, the cost of their Kentsfield core Xeons will drop to $224 and $266 for the X3210 and X3220. The Clovertowns will see significant drops to, with the E5310 going down to a mere $209.

The price cuts will go into effect towards the end of July. It'll be hard for AMD to compete on price for a while after a new release, so hopefully for the Barcelona will be a stunning performer.
