Because they are about to take it off the market but want to squeeze out every drop of cash they can.

What I find interesting is that they are lowing the price on E8500's but you can't find a single place in the World to purchase the Retail E8500 right now and many people would gladly pay $300+ for one. Rumor is the E8500's are supposed to be shipped out end of April in a HUGE shipment according to an Intel rep I spoke with on the phone earlier this month. I think I talked to him around the 8th or so of April and he said, "From what I was told four days ago there's supposed to be a very large shipment at the end of April and this includes the E8500 retail box."

To those asking why Intel doesn't just drop the prices more and destroy AMD:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antitrust

I bet they would LOVE to end up like Standard Oil, AT&T, and others. No, they are content with what they have now, I'm sure.

This would never happen so stop bringing up this crap.

It is a high-tech company so that cannot and would not be a monopoly.

Back on topic:

The price cuts seem to be in effect on Newegg, Ebay, and tank guys too.

What are you talking about? Microsoft has gone through a bunch of crap about being a monopoly. Just because they are "high-tech" doesn't mean they can't dominate their market and destroy their competition. Actually, because computers are becoming more and more important in our lives, Intel could have more and more control over us.

Also I don't see why you felt the need for such an aggressive response. I'm just speculating and trying to have a conversation.

10x multi vs 9x multi, it's worth it.
Not to most people.
