Default SNB-E pricing?

http://www.techpowerup.com/154398/Sa...se-Stores.html

Is Intel really going to **** us over because bulldozer was a flop? Due to power consumption, I'll probably have to pass on bulldozer (wanted a good folder/game server rig)... I was thinking I'd just wait to see what SNB-E has to offer (10 days away supposedly) and go with either that or the 2600/2700k... but if Intel wants to screw us on pricing again, I might just have to go BD for my original reason: as a protest against intel's rip-off pricing (to be clear, current SNB is the best pricing I've seen from intel in years).

It's cool only having 2 corps competing in the CPU market for consumers...

Heh... many of those prices look completely off the wall, even for a platform that was supposed to be geared more towards enthusiasts with fat wallets.

Sadly it might come to pass, with no competition why bother hurting your profit margins?

Make more money -> Invest more in R and D -> Make better products -> Stomp out AMD once and for all.

Simple flow chart for Intel. Sadly.

Here is to hoping AMD comes back.

Yeah... I would have bought slower bulldozer if it wasn't at the cost of more energy consumption :( and I wouldn't be surprised to see intel adopt these prices as BD was a flop and they are close to the X58 platform pricing for chippies.

I highly doubt these are the actual prices , the $942 Asus mobo should be a dead giveaway. These most likely are pre-order price gouging prices.

earlier speculated prices of around $300 for the i7-3820, ~$583 of i7-3930K, and ~$999 of i7-3960X Extreme Edition.

But even these estimated prices (not pre-order prices) are pretty high.

Thats the normal pricing scheme of Intels enthusiast class cpu's.

I would be shocked if this were not the more accurate estimates.

And their normal pricing scheme has always been 'bad' for us. Intel likes profit margins of 45% or more... (I think I read that on Anandtech)

That pricing is what had led me to wait for BD instead of getting an SNB build.
