Tags: CPUs Intel i7 Product Last response: December 7, 2009 1:19 PM in CPUs Share lkn118 December 7, 2009 12:05:16 PM I recently saw the price of new i7 at newegg.com. i7 860 (2.8GHz)-$289.99 (Ringgit Malaysia 1004) i7 870 (2.93GHz)-549.99 (Ringgit Malaysia 2289) They have no differences between each other except for the clockspeed. Why the differences are so big? More about : 870 expansive compared 860 warmon6 a b à CPUs December 7, 2009 1:15:56 PM best way to put it, Intel likes major price jumps. It like asking why is there a $700 difference 920 and 975 when there only 600 MHz and a 1.6 GT/s QPI difference. Intel just likes the price difference. LePhuronn a b à CPUs December 7, 2009 1:19:05 PM Because Intel price them that way. The same can be said for the i7 920 and the i7 950. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
