Is Intel nuts or is newegg just pricing these CPUs weirdly? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Ya, they're trying to phase out old technology (Or awesome CPUs that overclock well like the 3000+).

To add my guess to the fray...

They are probably wanting to target the better line to those who buy procs retail (home builders, etc.)

I would bet those prices differences invert if you are a royalty OEM type builder (Dell, etc.)
And maybe to some degree to their system builders.

I still say it is because of the box size.

This is a comparison between the Pentium 4 530J, 531 and 630. I would like to draw your attention to the fact that they are all 3 identicle except that the 530J is 32bit where the 531 and 630 are EMT64 capable and the 630 has double the others' cache, yet is the cheapest.....here is a quick chart;

Pentium 4: Clock Speed: L1 Cache: L2 Cache: EMT64: Price:
530J 3.0GHz 12kb+16kb 1MB No $191
531 3.0GHz 12kb+16kb 1MB Yes $185
630 3.0GHz 12kb+16kb 2MB Yes $172

So as you can see, the only differences here is that the 530J is NOT EMT64 capable and the 630 has double the cache, so why is the best one the cheapest and the worst one (1MB cache AND 32 bit) the most expensive???

Do you guys think this is Intel's doing or is this crazy pricing Newegg's fault?
You'll see stores do this to try and get rid of items at a profit, regardless of whether it makes sense to an informed buyer or not. My local store is selling a 6800 Ultra for over $400.00 even though you can buy a 7800gt for a lot less than that in the same store. I asked a worker why they still have it priced like that and the response I got was "the owner is trying to get his money back" and is hoping for an uninformed buyer.

I agree with this theory. I have seen it happen so many times. Many owners do it and there's always someone to fall for the trap.
As long as the buyer remains uninformed I think he will be happy. What happens when they find out they were ripped off ?

They might have a big stock on the low priced ones...
