The desktop PC's market is getting smaller and smaller, but it's still significant enough to be worth some important investments in research and development from the world's most important chip manufacturers. And, in fact, that's exactly the case with Intel
, who's got some very serious plans for this particular segment, for the remainder of 2010.
So, according to a report by Digitimes
, the company is slated top introduce three new CPUs in mid-July, including here the six-core Core i7-970, the quad-core Core i5-760 with core frequencies of 2.8GHz and quad-core Core i5-870S for small form factor PCs. Pricing for these three models
is estimated at 885, 205 and 351 US dollars, respectively.
August will apparently be yet another busy month for Intel, the company planning to release the Pentium E5700 for US$75 in the first half of the period and the US$138 Core i3-560, US$86 Pentium E6800 and US$53 Celeron E3500 at the end of the month.
However, Intel will do a lot more than simply rolling out a couple of new CPUs. In fact, it's also going to cut pricing for a very large number of processors from its Core i3, Pentium and Celeron lines, which should make them more interesting for customers
and thus bolster the company's sales. We are just a few, but there are many of you, Softpedia users, out there.
