Intel Ivy Bridge Pricing I thought these were supposed to be comparable to Sandy Bridge counterparts, priced at $212 for i5-3570K

But it seems that everyone is pricing it at $249?

I was wondering about this as well. It seems no one is going by pricing that Intel announced last week.

I think those prices were the prices they were selling them to retail stores, obviously stores are going to be taking their cut so its going to be higher.

After a lot of searching, I finally found an article that does say that the announced prices were what the retail stores would be paying for the processors. I wonder why they would announce those prices to the public or why the press, other than that one website, would not clarify. I'm still planning to upgrade pretty soon, but I am kind of disappointed that I will be paying a higher price than I originally thought.

Looks like the cheapest place is MC with $189 instore.
Even in Malaysia where these are made, they are sold for about US$245 equivalent.
