Gotta pay to play. Don't like it? Take up knitting. Or buy a cheap chip and be quiet.
Lol, this.

Not sure exactly how much they cost but its in the millions for sure. Every time they come up with something new they build a new fab here in the Phoenix Metro area. I believe they have 5 fabs here. R&D is not cheap at all.

Here is some insight into R&D (note this was from 2009):
Gauging the return on R&D: Do tech giants spend too much?
By Larry Dignan | May 14, 2009
Quote:
Intel was left off IBM’s R&D spending chart, but according to SEC filings the chip giant spent roughly $27 billion on R&D over the last five years. Much of that R&D has translated into Intel’s manufacturing prowess, but what’s the real return?
Quote:
The company also indicated it could command a premium in certain markets due to the desire for Intel architecture. We would note Intel’s revenue growth has only averaged 4-5% over the past 10, 7, and 5 years despite a multitude of growth initiatives and has been below the average growth of both US and world wide GDP.

Intel Pops the Cork
by John Mulqueen | November 2010
Quote:
"Most Super Bowls contribute about $420 million once to the cities where they are played," bubbled Christine Mackey. "This is a Super Bowl every 60 days, $2.8 billion every year."

Whelan, director of ECONorthwest, a Portland consultancy, and Mackey, director of economic development for Chandler, Ariz., were celebrating the news that Intel Corp. will spend US$6 billion to $8 billion to build a new R&D center/manufacturing plant in Hillsboro, near Portland, and upgrade four other fabs, two in Portland and two in Chandler.

Between 6,000 and 8,000 construction jobs and 800 to 1,000 permanent high-tech jobs will result.
Quote:
Whelan says the new R&D facility — dubbed D1X by Intel — will cost $4 billion to build and outfit, with the rest of the money spread over the four other plants. It will open in 2013. "The downstream effect of this is really huge. The jobs multiplier effect is that for every job Intel creates, another 4.8 jobs are created in the region. These are very high paying jobs, on average over $100,000 in salary and benefits, he says.

2011 Global R&D Funding Forecast - Industrial R&D: Electronics and Computers
By Martin Grueber | December 15, 2010

Quote:
With 80% market share, Intel has become the largest manufacturer of microprocessors in the world. It recently opened a $1 billion chip assembly and testing facility in Vietnam and within two weeks opened a $2.5 billion semiconductor manufacturing plant in Dalian, China.
This stuff is not cheap to create!

HAHA! Cost intel $16.50 to make that chip after labor,parts and R&D. sure you need a $300 mobo to go with that nice new gold coated $600 proc
Maybe cost them to $16.50 to duplicate, but how much did it cost them to develop the tech?? Did u ever think of that?

Edit: On a second thought, I would love to see its benchmarks comparison vs 2600K.
If you have a 2600k you probably wont see any benefit from the chip other than playing around with it or bragging rights.
