$100 more for 100 MHZ?
on January 4, 2012
Let me start by saying I just bought an i7 2600k and can say the new Sandy Bridge i7's are bar none some of the best CPUs out now.
With that said, why the two stars? Being a great group of processors doesn't mean you should charge $100 for a 100 megahertz increase in speed. The 2700k's price is just plain dumb! The jump from the 4-core 6MB cache, 2500k to the 4-core, 8-thread 8MB cache 2600k is around $80. That to me seems to be more worth a $100 price increase than a simple 100 megahertz jump.
Come on Amazon, Intel's "Recommended Customer Price is only $332!"
Thanks Amazon. You have dropped the price to $369. Wait, now it takes one to two months to ship...
Now available but at the ridiculous $399 price.
