Comment: Probably not a price war, more likely fire sale (Score 2, Insightful) 249

If sales were unexpectedly slack in April, Intel would have built up excess inventory. With Core2 impending, they would need to bleed excessive previous generation parts off in hurry. Excluding coercive tactics, the one of the best ways to get sales quick is price cuts.

The price cuts probably have little to do with competitve reasons and are more likely operational.
