Tray price???? Tags: CPUs Last response: May 15, 2007 3:27 PM in CPUs Share Madhatter4 May 14, 2007 9:49:09 PM 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 exit2dos May 14, 2007 10:05:00 PM 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. sirheck May 14, 2007 10:40:57 PM My name is spelled (trae) Related resources Does painting the motherboard tray make it no longer ground? - Forum AMD Athlon II X2 280 Tray - Forum Fractal R4: HDD unsteady in tray[solved] - Forum How can I remove the HDD tray? - Forum What is does "Tray" mean in CPU terms? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

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.

Gh0stDrag0n May 15, 2007 5:50:35 AM The Egg must buy a sh1tload of trays. I wonder if they get a special "bakers dozen" deal? exit2dos May 15, 2007 9:29:49 AM I wonder what Daimler would sell CPUs for? :wink: dasickninja May 15, 2007 11:23:43 AM Five times below purchase price?

Their unions won't allow 'em to make decent/useful products. dasickninja May 15, 2007 3:20:55 PM Quote:I get my news from somewhere other than the Daily Show. wow, what do u like watch the colbert report right after too? 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. glupee May 15, 2007 3:27:41 PM 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: Can't find your answer ? Ask !
