Is Intel cutting prices?

Last week, Barron's reported that Intel is planning significant price cuts across multiple chip lines in the coming months. The new pricing is expected to affect their quad-core and double-core server chips, including the Xeon line. The impact could be as much as a 40% for some models.

Barron's source is an industry analyst named Michael McConnell, and I haven't seen any confirmation or denial from Intel. So it will be interesting to see how this plays out over the coming months. AMD is increasingly aggressive in the server market, which I believe to be the big growth industry for the next 5-10 years.
