Why E6750 is cheaper than E6600 if the E6750 has a beter performance?

Intel is phasing out the older 1066fsb C2D models and making the new 1333fsb models more competetively priced

the logic is this..

why buy something inferior if, you could buy something better?!

1066 vs 1333 not much benefit, but i see it as a progress for the sake of progress thing.

and hey? why complain ^^

Q.Q I have an E6600...does that mean I have to upgrade already?! Ugh.

Remember to check if your motherboard supports the higher FSB. Finally somewhere where AM2 beats Core2Duo, in that it max requiers a bios update untill 2nd half 2008 to support the newest processors from the manufacturer.

many bppl will need new MB before they can run the 1333, so buy pricing them lower they get ppl who want the chips, getting new the G35 which means they're also more likely to upgrade again at penryn. and for theose who want to stay a 6600 then they can without having to upgrade there motherboard.

They will catch up :ange: 
If they can make money selling 2X E6600 for 266$ they can price a single E6600 way lower.. so
They will catch up :ange:
