[Intel] Core i7-2700K Listed in October 2011 Pricelist at $332 - Page 4

post #31 of 67
I think this was more or less the price one of the rumours quoted a few weeks ago. Anyway, now that the market knows the performance of Bulldozer, Intel and retailers really have no reason to drop the i7 2600k's price.

Intel still practices those prices because they can. If you factor in the price of changing platform to a newer one, sometimes it makes financial sense. For example, the Core 2 Quad Q8400 is still being sold and it competes with the AMD Phenom II X4 840 3.2 Ghz performance wise, although it costs more - but then again you have to factor the cost of changing platform. Sometimes all you need is an additional 2 cores to keep you going another year for the specific kind of tasks you do.

Of course, there is little point in buying a Q9550 brand new righ now unless you're very fond of it and have a great 775 motherboard to do some overclocking. Or you can always get one second hand. On the other hand, this time last year it still made sense to buy one at that price. I did I had an E8400 and sold it while it was still worth some considerable cash, and bought the Q9550 E0 brand new. Last year it was still Nehalem time, and there was no incentive to go that way at that time (soon to be discontinued platforms), AMD was of course still only on par with the Core 2 Quad lineup and Sandy Bridge was still a few months away, and I generally don't jump on the pioneers bandwagon (and then the Sata 2 controller problem came delaying the Sandy Bridge platform), plus just upgrading the CPU takes a lot less time and effort. All in all this chip has lasted me for a year already and hopefully it will last me another playing new games that take advantage of 4 cores just fine.

Yeah, you have to remember the core 2 quad lineup still competes with AMD's K10 and bulldozer. Kind of sad lol

No way dude, Clarkdale i3's were a lot better than these SB ones. Unlocked and ready to go.

microcenter sells them for $274

hmmmm, only about $15ish more than a 2600K, anyone else questioning the performance level? im upgrading either way for the IGP, but was also hoping for a nice performance increase.

of course then again, a drop in power consumption and a pretty nice IGP upgrade is definately worth $15-20 more than a 2600K

*4.5 GHz. But yes pls, I'd buy one in a heartbeat for a dedicated Minecraft server.

i know its not the usual concern, but when the 2500k/2600k come with it already, and looking at performance increase/lower power draw, its nice to consider since my computer is a HTPC/gaming rig.
