Price drop entirely depends on how well the new models are picked up on by the customers. If the 920 keeps outselling the other chips at its current price, Intel may not drop prices at all but instead insert the 950 in the price range between the 940 and 965, and put the 975 at an even higher price point. That sounds plausible to me because the Core i7 920 is fairly cheap considering the performance it offers. I'm used to paying £300+ for a CPU of that range. This D0 I have came in at £249.Originally posted by: DanK414
Sorry for the little sidetrack but I need to ask this question.
In light of the news from Intel's release date on the i7 950 on the CPU post, I was wondering if my best bet is to wait until i7 950 releases and then buy. I hear that there will be a good price drop on the 920 and that 940 will be around the price range of the 920. In addition, I take it my chance of getting a D0 will be much higher.
Also, the professional online retailers over here all indicate a separate product for the D0 so that you can pay a little premium and be sure to get one. I would be underwhelmed if this wasn't possible in the USA online/in-store as well?
