Just thought I'd let everyone know.
Find them here.

Edit: To fix link.

More about : 6550 6750 6850 newegg

Nice man, thanks for the quick link. Chips are looking pretty high right now, but of course it was expected within the first week or so at Newegg. I am struggling with the thought of ordering the 6750 from mwave for $205 with 2 day shipping.
July 23, 2007 5:14:46 PM

Let me get this straight, the e6850 is clocked higher, runs a higher FSB, and yet costs $600 less than the X6800?

The only downside I see is that the multiplier is locked, but at 3ghz, who cares!?

From everything I have read, the locked multiplier shouldn't be an issue with the ease at which it overclocks anyway. I had $350 set aside for a processor so I went ahead and ordered the 6850. Looking forward to upgrading my old mb, ram, and processor.

Don't spend 350 for the 6850 it is now 315

Thank you for your contribution to this thread. Now that everyone knows that you do not "care" about Intel, we can all go order our AMD chips.
July 23, 2007 5:51:31 PM

now the e6850 is 325 on mwave.com

Thank you AMD Fanboy. I almost made the mistake of buying an Intel CPU! Imagine the ridicule I would have received from my friends when they learned that you didn't care about Intel yet I bought one anyway! :lol:

Thanks for the heads up, I was wondering when they would actually hit the shelves.

Not that it effects me, I just finished ordering my college rig

AMD Athon X2 4200+ (65W)
GIGABYTE GA-MA69VM-S2 690V Micro ATX
Kingston 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 800
Seagate Barracuda 7200.10 250GB SATA
coolermaster micro-atx case
lite-on DVD burner
450W PSU

All for about $400 total, not too shabby huh? :D

that machine is awesome. How do you even see what you are typing or doing with no monitor or vid card?

I spent $315 on it, I was just saying I had $350 set aside for a cpu, so I figured I may as well get the 6850 for the $315 rather than the 6750 for cheaper and oc it. I should have clarified better.

Planning on getting a lcd monitor and a video card after a couple more paychecks :p 

It has integrated graphics and I can use my old monitor in the meantime :(

Fry's electronics stores are offering the 6750 with Intel board for $280 in today's ad (subject to manufacturer's delivery).
July 23, 2007 9:39:58 PM

How are these E6*50's different than the previous models of Conroe dual core chips such as the E6420 or E6600?

July 23, 2007 9:55:03 PM

They have a different(better) stepping and a 1333fsb.
July 23, 2007 9:58:13 PM

So I should get a 6550 over a 6420?
July 23, 2007 10:24:09 PM

Yes, about the same price and the 6550 has a higher clock and a higher fsb.

Edit: The 6550 also has the G0 stepping, I'm sure the 6420 will still have the B3 stepping for a bit to come.

Actually the E6550 only has a 7x multiplier.
If you want to overclock, get the E6750.

And I don't think they will make E6420's with G0 stepping.
July 23, 2007 10:34:12 PM

G0>B3?

And I won't overclock that much, since I need the computer to last 5-6 years.

Shouldn't that be the oposite? If you want more future-proofing, the first thing you must do is overclock.
Don't even worry about the chip not lasting, that's a non-issue.

You should buy the E6750 and overclock to 3.6Ghz. Should give you great temps with a Zalman 9700 and last you for 15+ years.

I think he doesn't want to OC because the CPU could die earlier.

Have you guys seen the prices on Newegg. I have been watching the prices all day over the weekend and since last week till this morning waiting to buy a Q6600. They went from 460 to 420 last week to 360 to 320 come Friday all the way to 299 Saturday morning so I figure I wait till I wait till Monday moring to come down to 266 right. WRONG!!!! I go to order it at the 299 price and it is out of stock. I then put in auto notify, I get my email at about 2pm this afternoon and wait about 20 minutes to go get the cpu. I go to order it and sure enough it is at 320. I then go to just buy the freaking thing and as I put in my credit card info and click complete order my total comes to freaking 345!!! So what did I do?? I said DELETED IT and went to Zip zoom and bought it for 311 shipped overnight. I cannot believe the fluctuation on newegg. I believe in supply and demand but sheesh when I go to click buy on something and fill out my card for a certain price I should get honored that price not 25 more. Unreal!!

Yes, that is true. Now about the G0 stepping vs. the B3 stepping, which is better?
July 24, 2007 12:32:06 AM

G0 runs cooler.
July 24, 2007 12:44:10 AM

I have been watching newegg too.


My mobo went out of stock and said it would be restocked by the 25 then a few hours later its in stock!!?!?!
July 24, 2007 12:50:16 AM

They found a hidden stash!

Q6600 = 375$ on Newegg (as I write this) but that might change in few seconds :) 
- What a ripoff :o 
July 24, 2007 1:50:02 AM

I agree. I think that newegg is just changing the prices to whatever they feel like. An E6750 was $199 THIS AFTERNOON and now it is $235. WTF!!!!!!!!!!!! Not to mention that according to Intel it should be $186 for prices of 1000, so $200 should be right as far as retail goes.
July 24, 2007 2:02:09 AM

Maybe they are trying to make some extra cash to upgrade their servers, cause man is their site loading slow this evening. Probably everyone refreshing the page every minute to see the newest price.

The 186$ is for shipments of 1000, prices will probably stay around 200 on that chip for a while.
July 24, 2007 2:20:47 AM

It really is a shame that NewEgg is price gouging like they are. I've always felt they were the best e-tailer out there. I have been waiting for the price drops too and it looks like I will have to buy mine from some other e-tailer because I am not going to get ripped off just for the priviledge of buying from NewEgg.

I've found a couple of other e-tailers that have the e6850 for under three bills. And the e6750 for just over two bills. Go to www.pricewatch.com; you'll find them.

Shame on NewEgg!

Your right. Why buy this years high performance CPU when you can buy last years only half as good high performance CPU. :lol: 

Remember Moore's Law? Something about computer computational power doubling every 18 months? How long has this generation of AMD chips been on the market? And why would anybody buy ANY chip (be it from Intel or AMD) if the chip has been on the market for more than, oh let's say, the last 6 -12 months? :bounce:

I almost missed out on the $199 processors. I was checking newegg all morning by periodically searching for E6750 but would never get any results. Then I saw it on zipzoomfly for $198 and almost bought it. But I knew I could get it on newegg for under $198 with the 1.1% discount, so I manually checked the CPU category and saw the new processors there. I snagged an E6750 for $197.50 and went on with my day. I checked newegg later that night just for the hell of it and saw the price climbed $35. I was worried they'd cancel my order to try to screw me over, but as I was being paranoid, they emailed me my tracking number. So I lucked out. I understand why everyone is pissed about the prices. I don't think anyone expected prices to jump up and down over the course of a day. And when you're planning your budget for a PC, unexpected price increases **** everything up.
July 24, 2007 3:27:45 PM

You'd kinda have to expect the price changes though with how many people were planning new build around these processors/price drop.

@turboflame, no not too shabby, provided the PSU isn't a cheap croaker.

I got my e6750 at the $199 price. I'm satisfied. As someone whose handle I've regretfully forgotten suggested in another thread, the price changes may be the result of an automated system. I doubt a person is wasting his time updating prices that frequently, but an automated system could easily do it. Perhaps it wasn't designed to handle demand spikes. Seems to me a manual override on a timer ought to do it; set the price and not let it change for x hours.

Here in Asia, Hong Kong Q6600's are well in stock! and they are going for a flat price of $275 I could pick up a dozen at local dealers! =D
July 25, 2007 7:08:57 PM

Holy crap, $1500 for the QX6850.
