    Still on the East Side
    Intel Corp. has yesterday expanded its CPU offer, adding to it both desktop and mobile models built on 22 nm and 32 nm technology. On the desktop side, the company launched several Core i5 and i3 chips, including the GPU-less Core i5-3350P, plus one Celeron and six Pentium CPUs based on the Sandy Bridge architecture (see the SB mention in the chart). These mid- to low-end desktop parts are priced between $177 and $37.

    While Intel had nothing high-end for desktops, the company did introduce a new mobile flagship, the 22 nm Core i7-3940XM which costs a whopping $1,096 and packs four cores clocked at 3.0 GHz. Other releases include two more quad-core models – the 2.8 GHz i7-3840QM and the 2.7 GHz i7-3740QM, and a couple of low-end Celerons (B830 & 887).

    Besides rolling out new chips Intel has also lower the price tag of three processors, the 3.40 GHz Core i3-2130 (from $138 to $117), the Pentium G2120 (from $86 to $75) and the Pentium G550 (from $52 to $42).

    You are bothered by high end mobile processors rather than Intel using 3xxx naming for SB processors? :rolleyes:

    The Extreme Mobile CPU mentioned in the article is 22 nm, therefore Ivy Bridge. Intel is using 3xxx moniker for SB-E though, but they weren't mentioned anywhere in that article ...

    @Prima.Vera: the XM chip is 4 core + HT and I'm pretty sure it demolishes fastest 125W desktop offering from AMD.

    Not worried about that, I am more concerned with the labelling of 3240T, indicated to be Sandy Bridge yet having a 3xxx name.

    Not this again, Extreme chips has always been that much. Even AMD had CPU's in that price range. Look up Atlhon FX.

    It's a mobile CPU, the A10-4600M is like $199 in bulk shipment. (I can't find MX anymore... I think the A8-3550MX sold for $299)

    So? It's still an Extreme version, they'll always cost that much. And I meant the old Athlon FX. Top of the range was about $1000 as well.

    The real news here is the i3-3225 with HD4000 IGP

    It doesn't matter if it's a mobile CPU, 55W, 3GHz with turbo to 3,9GHz, 8MB L3. It's up there with desktop CPU's (and even beats most of them).
    I don't know how likely you will find them in "gaming" laptops, but you will most definetly find them in mobile workstations.

    Trust me, if it would have been any kind of competition from AMD, probably the top CPU's were at half the price, but since AMD offering is a joke....

    Again, look at history. Both companies have had CPUs this expensive, when competing properly.

    I disagree, PV.
    If AMD had a processor that could run nose-to-nose with Intel's, they would both be priced at about $1000.
    Look at graphic cards as an example. AMD's TotL offering doesn't drop high-end card prices by half ... or even close. At best you may see a 10% drop.

    Not dissing you, PV, just stating that both companies are in it to make money (as they should be for survival) and if their products are highly sought after they will charge as high a price as they can in the marketplace.
