if this has been posted already, sorry!

But that is just rediculous! $1400 for the qx6850!

does the extra 600mhz over a q6600 really justify a $1000 price hike? hell no, in my opinion
I paid $1500 for the QX6800 and then my zalman 9700 couldnt handle the heat output...lol

Prices are allways crazy when they first come out. Or to get the top of the group (fx serires anyone).

I remember getting my 3500+ newcastle for like $280 when it first came out. Now its probably worth about $30 lol.

I think she is, judging from her recent posts.

I can't wait to see it hah, looking forward to that thread. I haven't seen some good WC in a while.

And yes, intel likes their money $$$

And i never knew it cost more to lock the multipliers than to leave them unlocked! I thought it was the other way around. That is pretty funny.

Only idiots or rich people buy Extreme's. The rest of us are fine with getting a Q6600 and overclocking.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 G0 + Amazing Water Cooling Loop = $700

Probably, the reservoir will be made of diamonds. lol

Anyway, the extreme processors are always expensive. It'll probably drop a couple hundred bucks soon enough and stay there even when cheaper faster processors are out, like the X6800.

Seriously that is just way over priced, like way way overpriced. Imagine if AMD left the market and no one entered. It would be like triple that

it probably costs them $5 max in components and maybe $10-$15 more in labor if that. if one slice of an ingot makes about 100 dyes with the kents taking 4 of those that's 25 cpus per slice and that's just a guess based on my silicon slice with 8086s. since these are 45nm they probably have about 10+ times that. now the boards they put them on are worth almost nothing in the volume they deal with and the gold leaf isn't all that expensive. i imagine that they are making some profit
