2600K vs 2700K

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
I have the Intel i7 2600k and i came over the 2700k a while ago, and the only difference i could see was 100Mhz in the clock. Did intel do this just to make more money out of idiots, or is it any more differences between these two cpus?

There could be several minor reasons but in reality it seems pretty obvious that all Intel is doing is milking that cash cow for as long as they can.

That's what i figured too

We have seen that with the AMD Phenom series too 955 965 975 etc, 100 mhz more in the clock speed and 25 dollars more
I would't be surprised to see a 2800K @ 3600 Mhz for $399.99 before the Ivy

I really don't think they would come up with a 2800k, i think that would be to obvious. But there sure is a lot of idiots out there that are willing to buy something like that, they often have no experience tho.

The 2700Ks are higher binned silicon. They're for people who don't want to try their luck with the "silicon lottery" I guess.

If you get a 2600K you may get a great overclocker or a dud. With a 2700K you can be assured that it will clock good if not great. So you pay a premium for that.

I didn't realize i was an idiot when i only paid 104 for my 2700k.

I think you're an idiot for not understanding the whole story why the released a 2700K.

They are higher binned CPU's. It's been proven and already stated over and over again. You might get get a 2600K that bins at 48x multi. There isn't one 2700K that can't do a x52 multi for a bin.. That's not the whole picture, but that already shows the potential thumb.gif

The 2700K are higher binned chips. I went for one because it only cost 15$ more than a 2600K.
