I'll be blunt your picking this hill to die on right now smacks of media influncer type malarky, because your attempting at creating a artifical controversy over a very long standing industry wide practice to obfuscate matters.
Does he not remember the E6600 or the Q6600? How about the i7 920? All of them cheaper variants of the same high end SKUs available with the only true discerning difference being the clock speed. This is how the industry has always worked ever since I've been using PCs which extends well into the mid-1980s.
