cjl said:I have to admit, I'm somewhat perplexed by the $700+ for a 920. Someone is trying to rip people off...
yeh its truly weird Intel have said the Core i7 920 Price range between $284-$367Anonymous said:Might as well get the 6-core Dunnington at those prices....
yep Even Xeon E7450 Dunnington are cheaper $2,499.99 NewEgg
yeah, i dont see that ass the final price, it is not like i can drop that into my system, it will need a new mother board (x58 p55?) and some ddr3.
i was an early adopter of C2D (hence i have a e6300) and thing were EXPENSIVE. i think i will be buying about this time next year.
have said the spec look very impressive. and multi GPU setup start to look attractive. intel are really pulling out all the stops.

Let me introduce you to PriceSpy and Staticice
Based on current exchange rates, the 920 should be around $450, so $500 is about where prices will settle once you add in the usual ripoff.
hmm i thought you would like to know that the website http://www.suigaming.com the site listed in the opening post is actually an Australian Based Company
It was the same with the E8400s when they came out.
Looking at the $AU700, $AU70 of that is GST.
Take say 15% as a minimum profit margin (another $AU70) leaves about $AU560 as a wholseale price.
For some reason everything is more expensive here in Australia.
Intel manufactures these things in Malaysia not the USA so any excuses about shipping costs don't hold up.
Thinking that Intel probably has a 'blanket' pricing strategy that applies to all markets.
I'm not buying until the 'tick' cycle anyway at the end of next year. Plenty of time to save up.
The distributor's probably taking a bigger cut. Intel's wholesale price to distributors is about $AU330.
So if the distributor is selling to retailers at about $AU560, VERY expensive shipping.
$AU700 is therefore a good price unless the retailer really wants to shred the profit margin.
Besides it's $Au40 cheaper than the other Aus company listed in the OP. If you really want the chip a saving is a saving.
UK Prices at Scan (Personally after some history Overclockers would have to pay ME to shop there).
Exchange rate being ~1 GBP = 1.48 USD (Whatever happened to 1 GBP = 1.98 USD?)
i7 920 = £238.24 = US$354.23 :: NewEgg Price = US$299.99
i7 940 = £474.90 = US$706.10 :: NewEgg Price = US$579.99
i7 965 = £862.65 = US$1,282.64 :: NewEgg Price = US$1,059.99
All retail prices, the OEM versions are more expensive for some reason :\
For a hange it looks like we aren't getting gouged as much as usual, but still being skinned a little more than we should be.
