Buying a new Xeon

I've always bought enterprise stuff when they become obsolete to the IT world and show up on eBay. I assume companies like Dell just buy huge trays or some sort of bulk packaging of CPUs. Of course Xeons aren't really found out in the retail space. How does an individual consumer buy a new generation of Xeon without being gouged?

I don't really get the question, Newegg sells them, they are what they are.

Just because they have some Xeons on their site doesn't mean you can get any Xeon you want. They hardly sell any, and when it comes to new ones, the next generation is already out.

I don't want any of the SP processors. Jump over to the W-22xx line and they all say "pricing unavailable" despite the fact that you can buy a machine with one in from a place like Dell or HP. Which is why I am asking this question...they seem to lock out people from buying them when they are new.

Provantage usually has pretty decent prices on Xeons, I've bought a bunch of stuff from them before. I feel like most places that buy Xeons get them from OEMs or resellers though, consumers buying them is really an after thought.

I typed: Intel Xeon "W-2223" Processor buy into google.com.au search and one of the top links was:
https://www.techbuy.com.au/p/450668/...80695W2223.asp
Can buy for: $544.25

Didn't look any further, is there a specific model you want that you cant find ?

Maybe you could start your own "business" and purchase from Intel?

Bottom of the barrel Xeon sold outside of the US market? Still doesn't work. No one, even after the OEMs fill their supplies and resellers start selling them, stock the entire line. They're spotty on what is carried in retail. Basically I will have to wait 3 years to find a used one on eBay.
