It was a high end model and they used the Bad Axe 2 board in testing.

Not very good then... Well at least I can hope that they improve on it as I really want to wait for it now. Could you send the link to that please?

Also any ideas about OC'ing yet, or its power consumption and heat it produces?

Thanks!

It is, however, very important to understand something: Those prices are NOT MSRP. So, don't be surprised if everyone is charging more than that once the drops take effect.

To understand this, just take a look at Intel's current pricing sheet: (Link)

Note that at the top of the price sheet, it says: 1 Ku Tray Units

What does that mean? It means that yes, you'll pay $266 for a Q6600 if you buy at least 1,000 of them at a time, directly from Intel, and you buy OEM chips, not retail boxed units. The point is, $266 is absolutely not MSRP for a Q6600, for example.

Of course, stores are welcome to, and often do, sell chips below cost as loss leaders, so it's entirely possible pricing will settle near that range. However, understand that pricing above $266 isn't price gouging
Hi tankguys,

Working in retail myself, I understand MSRP and lost leader items. Thanks for the links and the quick info...

Take care, :-)

Edit: Yorkfields look impressive to me, but it's obvious some things at the moment don't use it to it's full ability much and a dual core processor beats it on some occasions due to this

I just about gurantee that Zipzoomfly / Newegg will have these processors at or lower than their 1Ku OEM price. Perhaps not immediately, but within a week or two they will. I suspect that ZZF will have the 1Ku OEM price immediately.

However, like TankGuys said, they are taking a loss for selling them at these prices and selling them higher is definitely not price gouging. Newegg will make all the money back when you pay for your $2 rush shipping / $6 AS5 / $15 fan...

I imagine they will too - but I am not sure it will be quite that fast. I think demand will be too high for a while yet

This is true! Every forum, review site or other threads I have seen, folks are as giddy as school girls just makin the cheerleading team over these things droppin in price. I think a lot of folks are going to buy these. Will make some sense to keep the price high as possible the first week.
I myself cannot wait! I have not been this excited building a new rig since I got my first Athlon64 cpu a few yrs back.
