Intel cuts prices of mobile processors

Intel today lowered prices on a handful of Core i5 and Core i7 mobile processors, as well as on a few desktop CPUs for All In One systems. The company also dropped prices on budget mobile Celeron CPUs, cutting them by at least 13%, and as much as 22% - 26% on selected models. Overall, the prices were cut by an average of 13.4%.

The biggest absolute price drops were for Core i7 higher-performance "HQ" SKUs with GT3 graphics, and for Core i5-4570R, i5-4670R and Core i7-4770R products for AIO desktop PCs. These quad-core CPUs are $33 - $34 less expansive now, which corresponds to about 5% - 11% price reduction depending on model. Furthermore, Intel cut prices of several ultra low power dual-core microprocessors by 4% - 10%.

In addition to Core i5 and i7 models, Intel slashed prices of all Ivy Bridge-, Haswell- and Bay Trail-based mobile Celerons, in some cases lowering them by as much as 26%. Mobile Celeron 1000 series, based on Ivy Bridge architecture, now costs $75, which translates to 13% reduction for most SKUs. Most Bay Trail and Haswell processors had their prices lowered by 19% - 22% to $107. The summary of new prices for all affected SKUs is provided below:
