Ok. If this article is true I have a question. The i7 2600 wholesale price is $317. How much will we the consumers pay for it? Any estimates/ideas? Any guesses as to how much the sandy bridge mother boards will cost as well? Any articles for that? I'm building a new pc over the next month or so.

Based on the prices the 2500K, for 200 dollars and change, it will not bottleneck most gpu setups if any.
The per core performance is said to be at least 20% faster, which is what games respond to. Its why games respond to clock speed increase much more than extra cores.

^+1. The 2500K seems like a very substantial speed upgrade for a $10 higher 1k price. Just need to see the other shoe drop (ie, mobo prices).

Only 2 overclcockable K chips? One i7 and one i5? The i5 prices look good as there is little reason to buy an i5 7xx now, but the lack of OCing will bother some people. I get the feeling they should have released more K chips to keep the performance people happy.

Also nice to see the 35 and 45W CPUs. Now we just need the performance numbers.

Imo, there is way more product sku's than what Intel offers now.
Probably means everything else will be EOL
There are 7 i5 quad cores- priced between 177-216 dollars.
Variety is the spice of life ?
What does the intel buyer have for choice right now in quad cores ?
The i5 760 204.00
775 c2Q ?
Move up to the 290 dollar I7's of which there are 870, 875k, 930

I wonder if they think they can maintain superiority over AMD without allowing slow chips to be OC'd to death.

1) The K processors are the top in their respective lines. That makes sense; let the OC fans see how much higher they can go. It is of no benefit to Intel to have the entry level chips be capable of beating the high end chips.

2) There are three differentiators for the K's. L3 cache, hyperthreading, and a notch higher starting multiplier.
If you need more than 4 cores, the hyperthreaded chips are your choice.
The higher starting multiplier is probably not worth much, since I expect both to be able to OC to the same high levels.
The value of 6 vs. 8mb cache is an unknown. It may have a bigger impact on performance than we think. It may be sensitive to the characteristics of the total workload . Benchmarks should tell.

3) My guess is that gamers will go for the 2500K for high end builds, and be better than the i5-750.
The 2600K will be better than the i7-950 for those who need lots of threads.

4) The prices look appropriate to me. You will get 15% more on a clock for clock basis at about the same price.

5) I see no reason why P67 motherboards will cost more than current P55 motherboards. It is a competitive industry.

6) Is any gamer bothered by the imbedded graphics? Don't fret. It is cheaper for Intel to design one wafer to do everything compared to different designs for different markets. If some of the full capabilities of a chip do not pass the testing process, those parts can be shunted aside. That is how we get 2 cores vs 4 cores. Hyperthreading vs. none. 3mb/6mb/8mb of cache.

I, for one am looking forward to a new build with sandy bridge.

Keep in mind that unless you have a K chip, no overclocking for you. (rumored at least) Because all the buses are tied to the CPU, rumor has it you won't be able to OC them much at all. This means if you want to OC beyond what turbo allows, you need a K chip. And they have one i5 K chip?

If you want to overclock - get the K version, if not - get any other version. Simple :)

@ geofelt - nicely put. Thanx.

(Except maybe that mobo pricing thingee lol . . . I'll bet you a dollar it takes a while for competition to settle the prices down.)

I guess we'll have to see if they keep the supply of the K chips up. I'd still prefer to see more of them at different price points. The cheapest overclockable chip is going to be the 2500K, and that's at $216. I'd love to see something in the i3 line down around $100-$125. (i3 2100K for $125?) Maybe even some pentiums.

if you believe this 429.00 Australian Dollars on sale now pricing
http://www.netplus.com.au/products-listing.asp?code=CP1...

apparently your going to pay around 272.209 British Pound for the Intel Core i7 2600 LGA1155 CPU 3.4Ghz 6Mb Cache (perhaps that's a typo and they mean 8 Mb ,unless there's a version we Dont know about yet at release!) Sandy Bridge 4C/8T Turbo Boost SB2600

Keep in mind there's FAR More places than the US of A pricing ;) 
so i thought you might like some extra current price exchange Numbers for once :D 

429.00 Australian Dollar = 272.209 British Pound

429.00 Australian Dollar = 427.500 Canadian Dollar
429.00 Australian Dollar = 320.178 Euro
429.00 Australian Dollar = 2,372.46 Croatian Kuna
429.00 Australian Dollar = 2,828.16 Chinese Yuan Renminbi
429.00 Australian Dollar = 3,299.17 Hong Kong Dollar
429.00 Australian Dollar = 2,472.43 Egyptian Pound
429.00 Australian Dollar = 13,032.0 Russian Rouble
429.00 Australian Dollar = 963,957 Sudanese Old Pound
429.00 Australian Dollar = 424.221 US Dollar
429.00 Australian Dollar = 615,376 Tanzanian Shilling (everyone's favourite)
429.00 Australian Dollar = 20,286.3 Syrian Pound
429.00 Australian Dollar = 3,431.23 Ukraine Hryvnia
429.00 Australian Dollar = 1,558.53 Utd. Arab Emir. Dirham
429.00 Australian Dollar = 8,323,189 Vietnamese Dong


429.00 Australian Dollar = 57,269.8 North Korean Won
i guess the North Korean's dont really care at these price's but they can make do with some smuggled in free Arm A8 mobile devices with 11n wireless and a tin foil hat as a direction aerial perhaps :D

sure the 6 vs. 8Mb cache L3 matters here, in case you didn't know/realise,
ALL Sandy Bridge will have a New internal Encode/Decode HD AVC H@L4.1 capable engine as standard and that run's totally in the L3 cache among other things.

and in fact, internally Intel "Francois Piednoel , Senior Performance analyst at Intel Corp Santa Clara ..." are even working on a x264 Patch to make use of this capability right now.

id say this free internal Encode/Decode engine in every single Sandy Bridge
is a very good thing, far more so than the new and improved Gfx everyone keeps going on about in review's, after all even Gamers like x264 video encoding now and again ;)  If only to show other gamers their HD fraps captures.

I paid $335CAD for my i7-2600k so I guess it wasn't too bad.
The manager told me that the difference between the locked and unlocked version was around $30-$35.

Also found out that even though the i7-2600k cpu's have the built in graphics chip, only the H67 motherboards will have a DVI\VGA video port built on the mobo. My P67A-UD5 does not.

The H67 mobo's are low end compaired to the P67's. Not really build for OC'ing and missing many USB\SATA 3 features.

So the P67 is the better choice over all for gaming imo. It's just too bad that I can't make use of the on chip GPU though.
