Intel's processor portfolio has just been expanded to include no less than ten new mobile offerings including five Core i7 models, four Core i5s and one Celeron chip. At the head of this new wave is the Core i7-4940MX which features 4 cores clocked at 3.1 GHz and bears a price tag of $1,096. This model takes the top spot in Intel's mobile line-up, pushing aside the 3.0 GHz i7-4930X.

This latest release wave also includes three ultra-low voltage CPUs, the Core i5-4360U, i5-4310U and the Celeron 2980U, the ladder being the cheapest of the lot, costing $107. The rest of the processors are found in the table below.

I've always laughed at how much Intel ripped off for an unlocked mobile 4c/8t chip.

Not that I would ever overclock on a laptop anyway :)

OH WOW. Seriously...
I try not to hate Intel, but it seems it does its best to make sure there always would be some BS it does to hate it for. Really, such money grabbing attitude.
I really wish for a miracle so AMD would produce something that would good enough make Intel unable to pull off such money-grabbing BS like this. :shadedshu:

Intel can get away with it because they can, just like apple; asking premiums for things that arent worth even half the price, its pretty sad that there is no competition on the high end mobile cpu market.

And they sell very few of those CPUs. They make profit from the on below those, the ones that cost roughly $400 an perform within a small margin of the expensive ones. Never seen an MX chip in a normal laptop that is not some Alienware or Clevo and the likes where you can choose such an outrageous CPU.

It's been that way for years. i3's are 2c/2t, it5's are 2c/2t with turbo boost, and i7's are the only 4c's with more L3 cache. Been a while since I saw an i7 with 2c/2t though xD such merciless ripoffs.

That is the highend ultrabook/subnotebook CPU usually i7 with 2c/4t and lower TDP.

The extreme 4c/8t mobile chips are probably very heavily binned. 3.9GHz turbo is about as fast at the desktop chips go, and it's very impressive to do that at 57W.

As jjihadjoe said. There may be very few processors that can be binned i7-4940mx within the volt/TDP envelope. If only one in a hundred can make it, you can understand the price reflects the scarcity rather than Intel trying to price-gouge.

Intel probably DOESNT WANT TO SELL too many of those cpus... it can't make them! But it does look good in terms of PR, benchmarking, possibilities etc.
