Intel Corp., the world’s largest supplier of x86 computer chips, has reduced pricing of several microprocessors and for the first time lowered the pricing of desktop quad-core chips to the level below $200. Even though price reductions are not really significant, they are noteworthy.

As a result of 14% price-cut, quad-core Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 processor, which operates at 2.40GHz clock-speed and features 8MB of level-two cache, now costs $193, only $10 more compared to the new price of Intel’s top-of-the-range dual-core Core 2 Duo E8500 processors that works at 3.16GHz frequency and sports 6MB of cache.

As a result of the price-drop, Intel’s mainstream customers will now have to choose between the higher clocked chip with two processing engines or a central processing unit with four cores, but relatively low frequency.

Intel also cut prices of certain quad-core Xeon processors made using 65nm process technology, though, the decreases are in the range of 11% - 12%.
