Core i5 time?
Intel updated its price list over the weekend and it focused on cutting prices within pretty much all its desktop CPU families bar the latest - Core i7.
The cuts are mainly of the order of 13-14 percent and affected products are within the Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Duo, Pentium and Celeron families.
This move raises the possibility that we'll be seeing the new Lynnfield Core i5 processors a fair bit earlier than expected, as well as the advertised wholesale re-brand of its processor naming scheme.
Here are all the affected products and their new prices:
