Such drastic price cuts would likely be a response to similar aspirations from Intel. Late last month, HKEPC reported that Intel would drop prices across its Pentium D, Pentium 4, and Celeron D lines come July 23. Most Pentium D chips are reportedly expected to fall around or below the $200 mark, with the 2.8 GHz 820 model due to sink from its currently listed (PDF) $209 down to $113. Meanwhile, the Pentium 4 line will supposedly top out at $183 with the 3.6 GHz Pentium 4 661, which Intel currently lists at a whopping $401. If HKEPC and The Inquirer have their facts straight, this summer could be quite an opportune time for a system upgrade.
