Intel's Core i7-2700K to cost more than 2600K

Written by Slobodan Simic

$331 is the number
Usually Intel's new and fastest CPUs usually have the same price as the previous fastest model they are replacing, but according to post over at VR-Zone, this tradition might change with the introduction of the Core i7-2700K. The Core i7-2700K is scheduled to launch sometimes next month and will be pricier than the 2600K.

As you already know, Core i7-2700K is a quad-core that ticks at 3.5GHz with 3.9GHz Turbo Boost, has 2MB of L2 and 8MB of L3 cache and a 95W TDP. When compared to the Core i7-2600K you only get a 100MHz bump. According to the same post at VR-Zone, the Core i7-2700K will be a better overclocker than the 2600K as Intel is cherry picking its best Sandy Bridge cores for this one.

Unfortunately, the Core i7-2700K will not launch at the same price as the 2600K, which was US $317. We have contacted our sources and got a number for you. The Core i7 2700K should be selling for $331 when it goes for sale in Q4 2011, probably next month.

Why am I not surprised by this?

Well, I suppose the fact that the 2700K costs just $14 more than the 2600K doesn't sound too bad to me.

Well these are nicer chips, so OC better, so you might get a better deal than the 2600K in fact.

Will it be a new stepping? Can fudzilla learn that?

That being said, if this one OCs better and Bulldozer sucks, I'm game.

Good PR but i dont see the point of this unless they reduce price on the 2600k ,its a K proc so stock speed doesnt really matter to me and to OCers in general.

What a crock of shit! Then again, just imagine if AMD wasn't around at all. I bet there would be another 0 behind that price tag.

We forget the extreme sandybridge is around the corner, we need AMD on steroids!

extreme sandy bridge isn't going to offer extreme performance. only the 6 cores will offer performance benefits. but intel could have just released those on existing sockets without making a ludicrous quad channel platform.

Considering that this CPU will cost 331$ instead of 1000$, I'd say Intel has already broken irrevocably with tradition, but it they have done so for the better.
