British e-tailer ships Sandy Bridge

Written by


Core i5-2500K for 188 quid
A British e-tailer is already shipping Sandy Bridge processors, but it has only one SKU in stock, the Core i5-2500K.

Oyyy.co.uk claims to have 262 units in stock, which is quite impressive considering the new processors shouldn't even be on sale yet.

However, we're really not entirely convinced this claim is legit, as we are talking about a small shop based in Elland, West Yorkshire and user reviews are mixed at best. Some claim the site is entirely legit and that they had no issues with their orders, while other users reported delays and spam as a result of their dealings with Oyyy.

The price stands at GBP 188 inc. VAT, but we would advise caution just in case.

You can check it out here, but don't blame us if something goes wrong.

I went to their website, had a word with the Chat operator, and this is how it went... :-)

Please wait for a site operator to respond. Lindsey: Hi, welcome to Oyyy.co.uk. How may I help? Jigar: Hi Lindsey, could you tell me if the processor Core i5 - 2500K is in stock Jigar: Also do you have the motherboard to go by ? Jigar: My friend is in UK and he is looking at it. Jigar:how many days would it take for you to ship it in London ? Lindsey: we cannot guarantee any delievry at this time Lindsey: as per the website there is 262 in stock Jigar: Your website has made it into news and lot's of my friends in UK are interested... But some of them are saying that this site is not legit... Lindsey: we are legitimate we have been in circulation for 6 years+

For a product that isn't officially released yet you should expect to pay a hefty price premium. Not to mention that British consumers usually get screwed on pricing all the time. Of course, given this forum, I'm sure someone will argue that AMD includes a blowjob with every processor shipped just to show they love you. The street prices in Malaysia equal out to ~$185 for the 2500K and ~$300 for the 2600K.

Good god people, think then post, not the other way around.

The reason for this is that a distributor called Computer 2000 seems to have accidently set this CPU to active on thier system meaning it not only appears on thier website but also on all of thier customer data feeds. You will notice many warehouse-less etailors in the UK listing exactly 262pcs of this CPU becuase that is the stock C2K have available in thier warehouse now which they are not supposed to be shipping yet. I am not sure if C2K's system will let any ship out though, I guess somebody will have to try and order one.

Well that 2500K isn't even out yet, so keep your premature AMD fanboygasms to yourself. One it's been on the market for a month, and is available in large quantities, then you can bitch and moan about how much it costs.

intel could really charge whatever they wanted for it, since AMD really doesn't have anything to compete with them. Intel could take a short term hit and sell them for less than cost and put AMD in a world of hurt. That would open up some regulatory headaches, though.
