Of course it is just b/c they are higher priced. They don't want to cannibalize their high end sales with these mid-range parts.

Intel is starting to become d-bags. I can't wait for AMD to get competitive again, not just at a given price point under $200, but really competitive, so I can ditch blue.

Overclocking as a selling feature? No overclock unless I buy the expensive processors? Why the hell do you think most people OC in the first place, so they can buy the $100-300 processor and get $500-$1000 processor performance levels.

That coupled with two new sockets for the last tick and tock, Intel can go eat a bag of weenies.
