    If anyone doubts that intel will raise the prices once there is no competition, just look at the server market. The new SB 8/10-core chips cost an arm and a leg

    Both AMD and Intel have pushed $1000 desktop CPU's in the past, either company would love the chance to pump up the profit margins again.

    Server CPU's i find it harder to judge as both company's have been selling ones that cost well over a thousand each for a long as i can remember (I'm almost 25 so it's not a very long time :laugh:).

    I'm still waiting for the 10 ghz pentium 4.

    I see their marketing machine has been pulling over time.

    Wait, better yet, I want a larrabee (or w/e the sp is)!

    So it turns out that Intel didn't (re)invent the transistor, they're just the first company to use it.

    For all that Sandy Bridge was hyped, I was pleasantly surprised by the 2500K & 2600K price points. I think if there is any increase in price on the 22nm Ivy Bridges, it will be minimal. Also, I'll be willing to pay a few dollars more for a CPU upgrade that doesn't require a new board and RAM. Basically, I would predict that the initial high end K offering of the Ivy Bridge will be between $300-350 and Microcenter will probably sell it for $279-299.
