<i>From the article</i>

In case the reports from various sources are correct and the chip is to be priced at $925 in quantities starting from 1000 units, its retail pricing will be about $1000, even higher than we originally suggested.

Helloooooooooooo Pentium III 1GHZ!



Bah, I don't believe it'll sell or even be sold that high. PC Shops haven't gotten used to selling such since the 1998- days.

I know I certainly won't be buying one for that price. If the PC shop down the street was selling them for half that price I would be tempted, but ultimately refuse. :smile:

Well, according to slvr_phoenix my "common sense is probably disabled" for believing that the P4EE could be priced that high from Intel. I guess we will find out next week!!

I've just calculated how much money I've spent for my current PC components. I've current PC components (including monitor) has cost me ~$730. And I haven't spent $730 at once. I've spent it mainly within last 18 month and in step by step.

I won't be getting a FX-51 anytime soon, either, for that matter.

$1042.00 CDN. Wholesale. I'd be selling it for around $1300.00. Ouch.

Hopefully someone's rich enough to want one of these... hehe.

I dunno, if I had a spare grand or so lying around when I finished putting all the rest of the components for a pc togeather I might would pick up an EE or FX. Problem is, by the time you blow 3-4k in component parts you don't have a k or so left to get a processor.

Enchanted edition
Extremely Exothermic (?)
Extremely Expensive
Environmentally Efficient

Those are a few more (bad, but fun to make), either way it seems the EE is just vaporware...
