Intel's high-end LGA2011 platform has been out for a number of months now and since the platforms introduction there have only been two SNB-E processor choices available, the six-core Intel Core i7-3960X (review) and Core i7-3930K. These hexa-core processors are costly though as the Intel Core i7-3930K runs $683.40 and the Core i7-3960X Black Edition is $1049.99! In years past the most popular desktop processor for the flagship platforms have always been around $300. An example of this on the previous generation LGA1366 platform would have been the Intel Core i7-920 processor and then the Core i7-930 when it came out. Both of these processors were hands down the best sellers for the LGA1366 platform and you can argue that it was due to price and overclockability. Intel launched LGA2011 without a value minded processor and that caused many of our readers to put off buying this platform and we don't blame them. Later this month Intel plans on solving this issue with the introduction of a quad-core processor called the Intel Core i7-3820 for a mere $285. We are hearing that the Core i7-3820 should be made available the week of February 12, 2012.
