While the prices are far from confirmed until Intel updates its pricing list, some have reported seeing the Core i5-750 listed at Fry's Electronics for $205, which comes close to the prices listed above.

    the processor prices are not the problem, getting an i7 920 D0 for $200 at microcenter has been around for months. It is the motherboard prices that have people interested. P55 in particular

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but under cores/threads... i am assuming like for the core i3 530, it says 2/4 ... so this would be 2 physical cores then 2 hyper-threaded cores?

    The i3 530 and 540 are not bad prices... i will admit i've always bought AMD... but if my question above is correct, then essentially we are seeing a "quad" core for 120 bucks.. Phenom2 x2's and the Athlon2 x2's are going to be put on the spot by these guys....hard.

    Interesting, I thought the 2.66GHz Lynfield chip was going to release with 8 threads, and have i7 branding.. but perhaps Intel didn't want to cannibalize i7 920 sales with a similar performing cheaper chip. I guess this forces me into selecting a Core i7-860 if these numbers are accurate.
