Intel cuts desktop processor prices

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2008/07...essor-prices/1

In a move that'll surely make AMD weep, Intel has cut the prices on four of its desktop processors.

wow, looks like Intel is determined to send this message:
-dual cores are useless, look, they drop like crazy
-quad cores are affordable, buy my affordable quad core.

they were ? I didn't notice

During my salesman day at best buy i think i've never sold a single freaking Phenom based PC. Nobody wants them because they were told by some idiots that AMD's are bad CPU. I then have to tell them that whatever they heard is bullshit and that the only thing in which they would notice a difference is if they play games. Of course it's more complicated than that and Phenoms are obviously slower than C2D's in virtually everything, but it's not as if their noob minds would ever realize it while playing freaking solitaire on a sunday afternoon

stupid noobs

Did you not know? AMD is a third-world based company who make inferior, "knock-off" copies of American processor chips. They use child labor extensively in their third world sweatshops, and they deliberately disable the security features that American processor makers, such as Intel, use to safeguard you from spyware and hackers. Pft.
