Tray price????

Usually when I read about new CPUs they make reference to the TRAYPRICE being this or that...... what exactly does the tray price refer to??? I googled it and came up with nothing relevant

More about tray price
  1. The tray price is the wholesale price in lots of 1,000 - it's what large OEMs and retailers pay.

    The final retail price will be higher - depending on the profit margin of the retailer, and whether the CPU will include the "Retail Features" such as the heatsink/fan.
  2. My name is spelled (trae) :lol:

    Specifically (just for clarification) a tray is 1,000 OEM CPUs... no fan or heat sink. Retail boxed CPUs are supposedly priced higher.

    In reality the tray price doesn't mean much as online you will find new CPUs below the supposed tray price.
  4. ^^^Ok thanks for the info guys
  5. Yeah, but keep in mind that in some cases you'll see a retail price from a really good e-biz like Egg that will be below the going tray price and that's for quantity one!
  6. The Egg must buy a sh1tload of trays. I wonder if they get a special "bakers dozen" deal?
  7. I wonder what Daimler would sell CPUs for? :wink:
  8. Five times below purchase price?

    Easy answer... nothing. Their unions won't allow 'em to make decent/useful products.

    Don't get me wrong, I love both of those shows, and I tend to share the views expressed by Jon Steward, but I prefer NPR and the BBC.

    That being said, I trust the Daily Show more than Fox News or CNN.
  14. oh, i know what u meant, just found it funny.
    i read a stat once that said that any given news segment only gives you about 20% of what you find in a newspaper. Downside's that the newspaper's always a day late, but you get what i mean...

    thank god for this interweb thinger :wink:
