    Our friends at TCMagazine have just posted an updated chart of Intel's Core 2 and Xeon processors that reveal two new CPUs, and some interesting price reductions. The new socket LGA775 Core 2 Quad Q8400 and Q8400S processors are both made using 45 nm technology, feature a frequency of 2.66 GHz, a 1333 MHz FSB and 4 MB of L2 cache. The S model has a TDP of 65W while the normal Q8400 has 95W TDP. Both processors cost $183 and $245 respectively.

    Why don't they just make the Q9450 and Q9550 affordable? At 300$+ it has no place in the market imo.

    newegg has the q9550 for $269. but yea, prices on these upper end chips havnt really come down.

    sidenote: currently the q9650 3ghz is $5 cheaper than the q9450 2.6ghz.

    Good that they are going down, but still expensive as others said. I'd really like some Quad action :)

    True, but that would mean new motherboard and calling Microsoft to get Vista activated. Popping in a new CPU is just easier :)
