I was wondering what the 3770K may cost at retail...any idea how much of a markup there will be?
I was going to get a I2700 K, but the Ivy Bridge release has been bumped up a week so they will be available next week.
The 2700 was going to be $330...will the 3770 be about the same price?
I would expect to see the prices on the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors to be right at the same price point that their 2nd generation Intel Core processor brothers were. This is based on past experance on processor launches from the past 9 years. While some resellers may have prices a little high at the launch this will soon drop as we show that there is more than enough to meet the demand. The Intel Core i7-3770K should be more of a replacement for the Intel Core i7-2600K than the later Intel Core i7-2700K.
I believe according to Anandtech (maybe) that the 3770k will be priced around the 2700k's launch price. Like stated above, it will replace the 2600k/2700k series of i7's and is going to be priced between or the same as one of the two.
There is one thing a lot don't compensate for, such as price gouging. At launch they will probably be 10-15% or more higher than what Intel states the MSRP should be for about a month or two. Then they will drop down a bit and finally settle at their MSRP.
