Let me be clear I have no knowledge on this one way or the other except for the reasons that I have outlined below.
As the others have said based on the past history of new releases there will most likely not be any price drops on our current processors. The reason for a price drop is to make the product more attractive to the consumer so that they might buy it. As things stand right now, there isn't an over abundance of current processors sitting out on the market. As a matter of fact we have had shortages and trouble meeting some of the demand for our quad cores and above over the last 4 or 5 months.
