    It depends on competition, economy etc, but history has shown prices tend to stay and old models are phased out for high end products, which Core i7 is.

    economy is not going to bear it. i7's are not setting that well, and current Q2D's and quad's are more then happy running W7 coming up...

    Intel kinda put themself into the corner for now unless they just blowout prices... but the market is stagnant. I just got another Q6600 SLACR for $95 on Ebay that's sitting at 3.2 :rofl:

    I just got my i7 920 D0 stepping to 3.8GHz air-cooled with Thermalright IFX-14 and Scythe 120mm 1800RPM fan. My PC kills the Q6600 (I'd know since that was my last system). The i5 should come out first (according to intel.retailedge.com articles). Yes, prices always drop on old technology when new is released. It's also important to note that Intel is skipping right passed 40nm to 32nm processors. This means that the next series will be insanely power efficent.

    Intel price cuts are usually Mar, Jul, and Nov
    AMD price cuts are usually Jan, Apr, Jul, Oct
    but it really depends on the market,... e.g. AMD dropped Phenom II prices just 3 weeks upon release

    I've been doing a lot of reading on overclocking the i7 (I have never overclocked or even built my own PC). I read that if you pass 3.66 you have to worry about increasing the voltage, but more importantly you have to worry about cooling the CPU. What's the set up on your PC ?? I'm assuming that the best bclk setting is 180MHz.

    I still have a P4 3GHz, AGP PC from 5 years ago. It seems waiting a few months or so for an i7 system was a good idea because they seemed to make a lot of updates/fixes to the mobo and processor, including the stepping and overclocking options. But I'd probably want to wait longer, if not for a price cut, then for the apparent mobo update that should come with the 3rd version of PCI-E and USB. I figure this news 6-core processor will be $1,000. What do you think ??
