There's been a rumor floating around XS that was first suggested over at [DH] that intel will drop prices on the 2500K/2600K from 219.99 to 199.99 and 314.99 to 289.99 to make way for a 2800K that will be 6 cores with no HT for 349.99 but this is PURELY speculation and i haven't seen any ES of it.
Why would it be cherry picked? SB-E is already on B2 steppings. Hell C0 will probably be retail.
I know champ, I was pointing out that there won't be four (active) sockets
