no wonder why you act like an ignorant person. Because you are a typical bloody high end user.

Intel is at it again. they are such profiteering glutton. scamming the people by releasing overpriced products.

whats the point of releasing expensive products when only a few people can buy it?

i can barely afford a $300 CPU.

i would be very happy if Intel reports their loss in revenue. if it will ever happen........
i'm sure they have better financial specialists than you and me ;)

whatever

actually i am a lawyer myself. i know about the law.

Based on my findings, Intel committed many illegal moves. i can easily sue them and get millions.

one of their illegal move is the very high pricing tag for their cpus.

their high price tag dont justify for their products.

Intel should only make products for low end to med range users.

He is not being ignorant, he is meerly stating his opinion as you are, if both of you agree that intel generally prices higher chip for chip, the only differences you have left is because you appear to think it's for greed where he thinks they make you pay for performance, whichever side of the fence you stand ignorance is not a factor, I happen to beleive it's probably a bit of both, however if I offerd you $100 for your Ram (supposing you were selling it) by PM, and just as you were going to reply and say "deal".... he PM's you and offered you $120 I will leave you to decide who you would sell to :D

Considering the lawyer's fees I recently paid, I can't believe you couldn't afford a $300 chip. :laugh: It's amazing how much people bitch. I swear, you must not have been around 7-8 years ago, when a decent chip STARTED around that price, not to mention how pricey a good board and ram were. Hell, I paid almost $400 for an AMD 4000+ Clawhammer.

Oh, and please chill. This is a discussion, and not the place to be attacking other members.

but they didn't even announce prices yet! and SB was very reasonably priced... better so than even AMD bang/buck wise. As I said before, these are HIGH END parts. if HIGH END parts were the same price as md-high end, how would that make any sense for them? Sure not everyone can afford it, but high end parts are NOT supposed to be affordable by anyone!

You are basically saying that anything that is high-end is a scam. Every car over 50K$ is a scam? Is every 5 star restaurant that make you pay 40+$ per dish a scam? Is a good quality binder at 11$ a scam? NO.... why? because high end stuff costs some money.

My computer may be "high end", doesn't mean I payed a huge amount for it. I bought it used off PaulieG and then swapped every piece, one by one, selling in Canada and getting better stuff for the same amount of money in the US! Computers have become my passion, and that is why I decided to get a high-end machine. And TBH, the lga 1366 setup that I bought was top dog back then, and I payed something like 400~450$ for the CPU+Mobo+RAM. New would have cost me like 500~550$. There was basically no processor that beat the i7 920 once OCed, yet I find it was priced very reasonably.

Bottom line is that High-end parts have their place in the PC world, whether you like it or not. So far, I find intel's pricing to be right on the dot, which also explains why they are doing so well. High-end stuff exists, you'll just have to deal with it...

I work on this basis... If I want it, I'll buy it regardless of the price..
Sometimes might be easy to buy others might require a little more saving up thats all :)

If they seriously bring out an 8 core CPU with HT, I dont think I'd even consider anything else. I mean SB is alright and yeah it runs cool and uses low power and so on, but i get that from running an AMD 64 that I have sat here next to me or if I wanted to gain power, I'll use one of my i7's (well, when the other one is done!!)

Its all about what you want and what you wanna spend.. :)

8c/16ht Intel SB-E monster is rumored for Q1 12 and cost around 1250 dollars and did you really just compare Sandy Bridge to an AMD 64?

I just use this AMD rig for internet, so am I really gonna notice much of a difference to how fast Explorer or Google Chrome is gonna open??

I said my AMD 64 runs cool and uses low power, I never said it was faster than SB nor did I imply it :)

If thats what an 8 core CPU will cost then, I might still consider it. Christ, these two EVGA Classified board cost me the best part of £500 each and I've hardly used those in the two plus years I've had them!! Who cares? Its only money and if you want to spend it on that, you will!! My only thought is that at least I'll have something to show for it :)

SSD is going to make that biggest difference if your worried about that.

I'm not really bothered with SSD's at the moment. I have my server drives for that and they are about as fast as I need to go :) Again not much point in booting up a minute faster than someone else if your waiting for him/her in the game :)

I think in one way, any of my AMD systems would be fricking awesome with an SSD so I might just have to try one when I have sorted out my more important systems :D

i hope one day someone come up with an idea of a permanent CPU and GPU solution so that we dont have to worry about upgrading.

Never going to happen because as consoles demonstrate when you can't upgrade your stuck using 6 year old tech and tech is one thing that doesn't age well, and no one want stagnent tech.

that would kill the fun of computer building and choosing your parts :p Also, that would mean that the world would be stalling in technological advancement, which is VERY VERY bad lol and would make many lose their jobs o.o

On-Topic: I am excited for when the die shrink comes! Eager to see the performance of these monsters... unfortunately I won't be able to afford them :p

n-ster: i plan to upgrade to an i5 2500k. once i have enough money.

that should be enough for another 2 years ey? i mean for games.

i will overclock it too.

A 2500K at 4.5Ghz is plenty for years to come

yeah. you are right. unless games utilize more than four cores effectively and heavily.

i want to buy a budget motherboard that can overclock. im going to buy ASRock P67 Pro3.

i heard it can overclock pretty good.

If you do only gaming, the 2500K is probably the BEST bang/buck out there atm with a nice futureproofing as well

See? Intel's princing isn't that bad :rolleyes:

yeah. but AMD x6 core is way cheaper. lol. but sadly its way slower :(

i got happy when i saw the AMD x6 has a low price. but after i read the reviewes i found that its slower than even the AMD x4.

i think its a good season for upgrading the CPU now.

new games like Battlefield 3 are coming up that will require an i5 CPU.

You'd be surprised how close an i5 2500K setup is in terms of cost to a Phenom II x6 setup

and it is evident that Battlefield 3 will require at least an i5.

New upcoming games for this year that can be CPU demanding:


Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Driver: San Francisco
Dead Island
Call of Juarez: The Cartel
L.A. Noire
Serious Sam 3: BFE
Rage
Batman: Arkham City
Battlefield 3
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
Saints Row: The Third
Need for Speed The Run
Max Payne 3



n-ster: what games u plan to buy this year?

LMAO, Had to read this 3 times.
First I though how the hell does Intel get a pre release version of a AMD APU 3960X and thought AMD has Intel nailed to the wall with this "AMD 3960X" performance.
Then I saw the hyper-threading and how does AMD have hyper-threading ?
Next was damn it is not AMD winning for once.

Finally I got it, it is a Intel CPU with AMD APU style naming of 3960X that is 47% faster than the Intel 990x.

Great stuff Intel, you go girl. We knew you could.

I thought the i7 in front of the 3960 would have given it away? :p TBH the naming is kind of the continuation of SB naming but with the combination of lga 1366 naming.... kinda resembles the naming of Xeon lga 1366 processors
