Intel Corp. announced Wednesday that it is offering its resellers instant rebates on certain models of its dual-core Intel Pentium D processors, a move that makes the chips more affordable and has potential to boost their popularity significantly.

Resellers purchasing select Intel Pentium D processors between February 5, 2006 and April 22, 2006 from any Intel authorized distributor are eligible for instant product rebates: $40, $60, $80 instant rebate on the Pentium D models 820, 830 and 840, respectively. The promotion is not effective for Intel Pentium D processors 805 or 840 Extreme Edition as well as 65nm Intel Pentium D 900-series chips.

The Intel Pentium D processors 820, 830 and 840 cost $241, $316 and $530, respectively, in 1000-unit quantities. The rebates make purchasing of the Intel Pentium D 800-series more appealing and potentially allow system assemblers to build computers featuring processors with two execution cores more affordable.

The move by Intel Corp. is performed without any significant announcements: the company only unveiled the information for its partners. However, the effects of the move are likely to affect end-users seeking to buy dual-core processor-based computers.

It is not the first time when Intel pushes dual-core processors aggressively. In a bid to offer its customers a very affordable dual-core microprocessor, Intel Corp. plans to release Intel Pentium D model 805 chip in March, 2006. The chip will work at 2.66GHz clock-speed, will utilize 533MHz processor system bus and will cost $163 or $178 in 1000-unit quantities.

It's REALLY bad when you can't give your defective 65 nano CPU away...

Merom is going to be lucky if it arrives this year. Conroe will arrive early and hotter than expected.

Wouldn't take a P4 now if they were practically giving them away.
