Out with old, in with the new?
Intel are said to be reducing their prices on existing Core 2 Duo and Quad processors on October the 18th, according to a report by Hexus. Although the reductions are not massive, it is expected that there will be further reductions once the Core i7's hit the shelves. Those who are not going to be early i7 adoptees may be able to pick some real bargains up in the run up to Christmas.
