dual core pricing has always been too high or quad too low, the q6600 g0 should still be $500 and intel stock would be at 33 not 22
Why on earth should the Q6600 be $500?
It's old, fairly slow as quads go, and dirt cheap for Intel to make. Plus, 65nm dual cores aren't selling much any more due to the cheap 45nm duals, so the demand for 65nm parts has dropped faster than the supply. It makes sense that the price would be dropping.
