Default i7 1156 and p55 @ canadacomputers

Just went to the mississauga canadacomputers and saw some 1156 and p55 boards today they had the i7 750 for $250 and the i7 860 (or 870 cant remember) for $356. the msi p55-gd80 was $250 and the gb p55 ud3r was ~$130. its only in store i believe because it doesnt show up on their website.

Intel is on a witch hunt so CC better watch what they do with these NDA'd products.

Yeah they are seriously taking it hard this time. For I7 we where abble to show customer the product and tell some result but now. Nothing they put in the letter that we can get law suit if anything revealed about the price and performance. I think that it's a good thing so people wont order them like fool before they get out giving us a paper lunch.

Then it means two things. To make the employees have a hard time trying to sell them, or so the customers in Canada Computers can't see it.

Either way, I WANT!

Actually, I'll have to wait for like 3 to 4 years before I make a new build. I'm happy with my rig. Only thing that I need is more RAM, and a new router.

Theres some chinese site with benchmarks for a 750 someone posted at anandtech.
http://en.inpai.com.cn/doc/ens...sp?id=6804&pageid=5443


Looks quite impressive for $180 US. And only 95 watts I think? This doesnt have much value without knowing more but interesting none the less.

Core i5 750 @ 4.2ghz on Intel Heatsink 1.328V
