This isn't good news in the least...
But the i7 2600k is MSRP $550+.
I think the i5 2500k is $300+
If IB follows suit with the pricing you can expect $600-$800 unlocked chips.
Herp durp, according to the link I posted the IB chips won't have this limitation...
The LGA-2011 platform on the other hand works quite differently as Intel has fixed the PCI Express and DMI bus speeds inside the CPU which means that it's possible to push the BCLK on these processors without running into the same issues you would on the LGA-1155 platform. However, beyond Intel's Turbo feature, you're not getting any freebies here as non-XE processors are multiplier locked and there are no K-series processors on LGA-2011. Again, DDR3 overclocking is part of the package here too, but all the way up to 2666MHz and beyond.
I think it's safe to skip SB for IB at this time Edited by BallaTheFeared - 12/31/10 at 10:31pm
