It may take a few days to filter through to the retailers, but the Q6600 is going to be in big demand at that price...

These are 1000 bulk prices.

Add wholesaler and retailer costs, profit margins, varying competition, and of course VAT adds 25% minimum to those prices.
#2
So I shouldn't be too sad that PC World mistakenly sold me the E6600 for £117 then...
#3
err schizo have a lie down eh.the e6600 is only £138 to buy on ebuyer.im going to buy a thousand units for £138,000 and save 2 quid on each on?...not.to be honest all prices are available now if you shop around.
#4
Erm I was referring to the wholesalers who have to buy them in 1000unit bulk orders who these prices per unit, I never implied any consumer buying 1000.

Also note, this OP has no retailer nor specific product nor direct link to purchase

My comments are valid tbh
#5
Q6600 for me, although anyone not going to be in need of using 4 cores, would probably be better of buying the E6850 (or lower spec C2D) as it would probably be put to better use.

The prices have already started dropping though - the C2Q's dropped a few weeks back to around £50 more than what they're going to be with these official drops (after Intel approved it), i'm expecting a few companies to start a few days early like last time though (i'm hoping so, I want to start on my new build ASAP)

These price cuts are global and the retail prices, check most hardware sites its on there.

And:
Core 2 Duo E6750
2.66GHz
1333MHz
4MB
$183
£115

Or
Core 2 Duo E6600
2.40GHz
1066MHz
4MB
$224
£135

That's a hard choice lol!

If you want to overclock, it's not nearly as clear cut as you think.

I really cannot see those prices quoted as being what we actually end up with, doesn't make sense for the E6700 to be £75 more than the E6750 which is even cheaper than the E6600 by some margin.
I reckon the chips already out such as E6600 will have to fall in price as well or nobody will buy them ... unless of course they are going to be phased out.
For anybody thinking of upgrading to these new core duo chips just make sure that your motherboard can take them as it needs to be capable of 1333 FSB, it is not just a matter of dropping them in and thinking they will work like the other core duos have.
#8
I'm looking at getting the Core 2 Duo E6750 @ scan for around £130 quid (I get the free P&P)... will this price be stable over the next few days? Thanks.

P.S I want the Core 2 Duo Q6600 although I'd only buy it if it was around the £150 mark (I'm seeing them @ the £170 mark).
#9
will be interesting how cheap dell offer them to anyone getting the free upgrade of the xps 700's ... they're supposedly selling them at 25% off
#10
Are we likely to see some cheaper dell deals tomorrow because of this?
#11
E6420 is £116 at ebuyer now, free delivery too. Probably would go for the e6750 if it ends up being the same price though, at last for overclocking purposes (the 6420 can reach 4ghz, but only with some batches).
