Make one of those "P" processors with a "K" attached and I am sold. Unlocked processor without the graphical portion (which I'll never use) for a cheaper price? Yes please.

Should be interesting to see how much better the i5-2550k is compared to the i5-2500k.

Who cares about the .1 Ghz on the i-2550K. What I hop it represents is an aggressive binning filter that guarantees I'll have a CPU with more headroom to overclock.

According to this: http://www.anandtech.com/show/5475/intel-releases-seven... "You may be wondering what the P at the end of two Core i5 SKUs stands for. Intel has not updated their product database yet so we aren't 100% sure, but VR-Zone is reporting that it implies a GPU-less model. VR-Zone is also stating that the i5-2550K is GPU-less as well, which would be a step down from the i5-2500K that features Intel HD 3000 graphics." It may be the case that the 2550K doesn't have functional graphics.

That is very interesting... No functional on die GPU on the 2550K... No Quick Sync... No need for a z68 Mobo.

I wonder if the 2550K is binned higher or is just a 2500K/2600K with a GPU that got broke in the fabrication process

I think that it is better economy wise to just purchase a Pentium or an i3 and then decide if I wanted to over or underclock for close to the same price. I wish that the current prices would come down and then most people will be in a better mood but even the older 1366 and 1156 have gone up in price lately o.O
My i5 760 is worth more now than when I bought it on amazon o.O

The real question is:
Does it come with the graphics core disabled (failed to meet the specs for a full 25xx) so the circuitry is still there, or it doesn't have a graphics core at all and it is a native 4 core CPU?

If it is the latter, then I would expect it to have even better thermal properties, better and less heat dissipation and hence bigger overclock headroom!

One can only hope...

It's all depends on how it's said.
.1GHz sounds minimal, but 100MHz sounds a lot.
Same with warranty, 3 months doesn't sound as good as 90 days, even though it's the same thing.

TheCapuletSomeone who wants a low power bill? Not every PC requires bleeding edge performance. For instance, the modded gateway touchscreen all in one PC in my kitchen. I use it primarily for music, recipies , and printing out google directions or repair contract papers when I'm in a hurry. It has a 1.8 Ghz processor in it and runs perfectly.


I prefer to just drop the voltage to the most minimum for stock speeds and have the extra performance for kicks ;)

What CPU does it have? If it's a Atom then you're running on two threads as Atom has Hyper Thread.

Suggesting that giving us, the consumers, a few more options is somehow a bad thing is kind of a tough stance to take, in my opinion. I know we're all falling all over each other looking for evidence that Intel is raising their prices or altering their business model due to AMD's failure to compete, but there's absolutely no indication of that. There's no reason to believe Ivy Bridge or anything else is taking any longer than we already expected.

Kewlx25Ivy Bridge was scheduled for Q4 '11. I'm not sure it's "ahead of schedule".

nope, 'new processors' were coming out in Q4, which people assumed were IB, but in fact it was SB-E. IB has never been delayed.

To the article, I find it disappointing that they would do these releases. Then again it is a great way to sell otherwise defective chips (AMD did it first though), which will boost profits, and potentially lower costs on the consumer end, but had AMD provided some pressure we would be seeing things more interesting than these.

Prolly its sold in computers for people who don't do stuff other than browsing the web/reading the news.

Also processors like these are very cost-efficcient, and energy-efficient, so they'll be used in embedded systems, such as ATM's.

dude, next time add disclaimer and smileys. :pt1cable:  :bounce:  :love:  :hello:  :non:  :ouch:  jklol PEACE End Of Story!
on topic: i assume intel numbered the p-series to represent lower binned cpu from the next series e.g. 2550k is a lower binned core i7 2600k, i5 2450 is a lower binned 2500 non k, 2380 is a lower binned 2400. but the xx50 naming makes them seem like better versions of the current series. nice deception.
quick sync is a very good feature to have at one's disposal.
gotta say, 2380 looks like a good deal for budget gaming. would love to see how far 2550k overclocks.
disclaimer: i take no responsibility for any kind of trauma and/or damage my comment could cause to anyone. do not take this statement seriously.

Perhaps if you don't mind waiting 5 weeks for a render to finish. One first gen i7 is cheaper than the number of Celeron's it would take to make up the same performance.
