And $480 for a PRE-ORDER is a joke of a price ... meaning low ... for "our community" ... who are more than willing to pay $1000 for a video card, $800-$1200 for a monitor, $1250 for a computer case, $80 for a water pump, $150 for a radiator, $35 for a case fan, etc.

Heck, look at video games. Many is the time where you pay $60 pre-order for a game that not 3 months later sells for $45, and a year later goes for $25 on Steam.

And yes, I'd rather pay $200 less for a hex core, even though it is "last generation" than $200 more for "the latest and greatest bleeding edge technology". But as you so eloquently pointed out "our community" is very different than the rest of the mainstream world. Thus I really wonder why you are so shocked at this price for a pre-order.

It's probably going to retail at $379.99. Still doesn't really make sense to me since the part has less cache than a 4790k and probably won't OC that much better (it will OC better if the prelim reports are right but not enough to really make it worth it it looks). I guess they are going to market it more like an APU but who buys a $380 APU that won't even play 1080 medium at 30 FPS on modern games. It's almost like Intel is purposely trying not to sell Broadwell so people aren't disappointed their CPUs are dated 3 months later when Skylake releases.

Why people discuss those prices seriously ?

It happens in nearly every launch - some small shop puts listing for new toys early but with inflated price to protect themselves or to catch impatient people.

And now tell me what does the "mainstream" world do with this CPU? Browse Facebook? This CPU isn't one or the other, it's something in the middle. I can't justify the price for enthusiasts in any way and nor can I for "mainstream" folks.

Like already said, it seems like Intel doesn't want to sell these chips.

Just buy the i5 there is nearly no diffrence in performance in terms of gaming and regular stuff like that. Heck you could even buy a 3 generations old i5 and get minimal performance diffrence.

Also AMD step up im tired of these stupid prices.....

If you play GTA V there is a big difference in performance. Buying the i7s over the i5s for the past few CPU purchases really paid off for me there. There are people with high end GPU setups and i5s that are getting hitches and stuttering as their 4 cores are hitting 99% while i7s are sitting pretty in the high 80s, low 90%s without said hitching.

To be fair, GTA V is an very bad example. I know people with the same setup as mine who can barely play on medium settings while I run it on very high with constant 50+ fps. Some people with the same 8350 complain about stuttering badly while I don't get it. That game is just so unpredicatable (is that the right word?) for hardware it's not even funny.

They are probably talking about struggling to play on medium settings in the really grassy areas around the country side. I can do like 70-80 FPS on my setup at 4k (no AA as it's not needed and no post FX because I hate blurring) in most areas but fall pretty hard in those areas. Also there was a thread on here where a bunch of people with i5s were saying the game wasn't optimized well and it was hitching a lot while those with i7s weren't having the issue. Maybe GTA V alone isn't worth the justification of the i7s higher price, but for me it is.
