Intel Corp., the world’s top maker of microprocessors, this week reduced pricing of its mainstream central processing units with two or four cores. The price cut is not really significant, but it comes right in time before system makers start to purchase chips for their lineup due in back-to-school season.

Select Intel Core 2 Quad microprocessors now cost 11% - 14% less than before. It is interesting to note that Intel also decided to drop pricing of its energy-efficient Core 2 Quad S-series with 65W thermal design power, the most affordable model Q8400S is now priced at $213, a not very high price for a processor aimed at powerful small form-factor systems. Additionally, Intel reduced the price of its inexpensive quad-core Xeon X3330 chip for single-socket servers and workstations by 14% to $188.

Also, Intel also reduced pricing on lower-end mainstream chips, such as Core 2 Duo, Pentium and Celeron, by 4% to 19%.

The new official price-list of Intel is available here. The company does not release official statements regarding price-cuts.
