Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs Get Price Cut Ahead of Launch

For some reason or other, Intel has decided to set lower prices than originally planned for its upcoming collection of central processing units, or so it is said. 

The folks at VR-Zone claim to have found some information regarding the price tags of the upcoming Intel Ivy Bridge CPUs. 

Apparently, the Santa Clara, California-based company cut between $7 and $8 off the tags of each. 

That's 5.32 Euro and 6.08 Euro, respectively, according to exchange rates anyway. 

The 3.4 GHz Core i5-3570K, for instance, was expected to be tagged at $225 or so (171 Euro, give or take), but now it is set to cost $212 (161 Euro). 

Another relevant example is the Core i7-3770K, the high-end chip. Previously expected to sell for $320 (243 Euro), it is rated at $313 now (238 Euro). 

For those who haven't heard yet, the formal release of the first Ivy Bridge CPUs will happen on April 23.
