    Again, neat price list BUT, an original LIST PRICE or history of pricing would be a VERY helpful addition.

    I guess this is paid advertorial by Amazon and NewEgg?

    Considering, in the US, that most CPUs are purchased from those two companies, and their prices are typically the best online....why not use those two companies?

    Right on!

    Agree with Vinnie333, historical pricing would be much more interesting, as well as a comparison between the actual pricing and Intel's official CPU price list. For those that aren't aware, Intel publishes their processor price list every month on their Investor Relations site ( They have done this for more than 15 years that I can remember. They change the link every couple years, but it's currently located here:

    microcenter regularly undercuts both of those guys on CPU prices. Besides seeing as how those links aren't direct amazon links the question he raised is valid

    Not sponsored in probably the way you mean, but the whole point of this article seems to be to get click-through purchase revenue. Every time someone clicks one of these links and actually buys the product, Tom's/Purch will get a tiny kickback.

    They have these links on all of their reviews, if you haven't noticed. I don't mind it, but when the whole article is nothing but these (and not even a MSRP to compare against), it seems pretty shady.

    Microcenter only beats prices on in-store purchases with supplies limited with very few exceptions.
    Tom's is not behind a paywall so they have to get their revenue somehow right?
    No one is forced to click on any links.

    These are current selling prices in the US and are a time saving aggregation in one place.
    MSRP has no relevance here this is a snapshot of fluctuating retail pricing.

    You can always try PartsPicker, but these list make it clear which CPUs go with Socket Type MBs

    What's with the price on the Core i7-4960X? Makes no sense.
