sandy bridge drop 1156 prices?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
How much do you think that sandy bridge will drop the socket 1156 processors?
In particular the i3's. Any chance that the lowest i3 will go below $80? I have $300 left after my video card upgrade and i was hoping to pick up a low end i3 after sandy bridge was out.
Thanks for your help

Might not drop prices at all. The LGA775 CPuS are pretty expensive still and the Core I7 architecure has been around for a couple years.

Your only chance is to get them as used parts.

Intel CPUs practically never drop in price.

It would stand to reason the price would drop when 1155 launches.

Find your nearest Microcenter. They have killer deals on processors.

Yeah no kidding. Ive been wanting to upgrade my amd phenom 965. Wanted to get the i7 but it was 290 bucks on newegg, picked it up today for 230 bucks at microcenter.

Thats a question i had. Was that a bad deal getting an i7 now, when the SB are right around the corner? I mean id have to get a new motherboard and everything for the SB, but did I make a dumb choice? Is the preformance of the i7 870 still pretty good compared to the new sandy bridge processors?

SB will be anywhere from 5-20% faster clock for clock. The one advantage SB has over 1156 and 1366 is the overclockablility and low power consumption. Then again, 1156 was pretty energy efficient too.

What do you think I could overclock my 870 to, and still keep it pretty stable? Im using a 30 buck heatsink and fan i got when my old thermaltake broke, its not stock but its not high end either.

4GHz should be doable. My 875k isn't that great but I got it to 4.2GHz just by increasing the Vcore.

SB has been shown to do 4.5-5GHz on air cooling.

4ghz seems like a big jump from 2.93. But i guess thats because im use to AMD processors which ive been using for the past 8 years.
