Thats roughly $40 more than an e6400 at launch......

If the pricing holds true, barcelona better be $300 for more performance

That's $266 each in a tray of 1000, just so no one gets the wrong idea....still, that's a pretty amazing price point. I'll definitely be eagerly awaiting their arrival in the retail channels...

When do the 1333 fsb quads come out?


edit - $266/ea for 1000, not $266 for 1000 lol

I understand that, but that will probably realise itself at an e-tail price of <$300, as companies like Newegg etc will buy as many trays as they can get their hands on

This is getting crazy.....

I might never upgraded from what I have... ahahha... seems like the time between point A with price/performance to point B price/performance is getting shorter.... unlike the past where those two distances are much longer. the E6700 was the choice for me if when i was able to do an upgrade.... but now with the E6850 being cheaper than the E6700 and being a tad bit faster in freq and faster in fsb..... gosh....... i'll have to hold off for this one. I hope it is true.... pricing that is... but something tells me that the 266 is not true... lol

ok, loooking at this website, on the chart it shows the q6600 for $266.- and the qx6700
for $530.-
not sure if thats u.s. dollars but seeing that the q6600 here goes for $850.- usd and there
for $266.- i would assume that the $266.- for the e6850 will end up in the $850.- ballpark.

if for some reason is not the case and that chip goes for under $300.- usd, weee. :O
must have

You can either be part of the problem or be part of the solution.

There is supposedly a big price drop on the lower end quad core Xeons coming in April, so I'm sure there will be a similar reduction in the Q6X00 series to go along with it. Gotta be what that chart is taking into account.

Or a serious conversion issue. There's no way Intel would let their fastest dual core processor go for that cheap unless AMD was laying it to Intel as Intel is currently laying it to AMD. That price point is simply unrealistic.

Currently ... E6600 2.4ghz 1066fsb 4mb L2 = 313.00 and E6700 2.66ghz 1066fsb 4mb L2 = 512.00

But a E6850 - 3ghz, 1333fsb, 4mb L2 for 266.00 I dont really see this happening :/ Unless they make the E6850 the price point of a E6700 and make everything else move down in price accordingly....

Yeah, I don't believe that too... I think as soon as it will come out, it will be over $800... There is absolutely no way in the world it can cost that dirt cheap right off the bat. Unless of course, Intel has a surprise for us... say a 2000MHz 4GHz quadcore which they will price at $1000 mark. But they don't have anything like this even in plans, so I think this news is baloney. (well the financial aspect of it :_) )

Im actually thinking of going down the C2D road. If the E6850 is that low in price, I will definitely get one. Even if I have to wait to by a board and RAM.s**t, Ill buy one right now? Whens is it out? :)

Those are retail prices....the E6850 for $266, retail, will definitely not happen anytime soon. Buts**t, if you could get an E6850 for even $400 retail, that'd be a pretty damn compelling value. No idea if it'll really happen or not, but I wouldn't be shocked - I can't see Intel backing off the gas pedal at this point. Besides that, the overclocking ability the Conroes have shown implies that they could bump up the GHz levels without a lot of trouble. Who's to say there won't be an X6900 or 6950 or whatever on top of the new E6X50s?

Edit - here's some more fuel for the fire :) The prices in the E6850 link would imply another big drop from the rumored 4/22 price cuts, though...

http://www.hkepc.com/bbs/itnews.php?tid=735045

Edit again....this link seems to be retail prices again. f**k it, I give up, it's all guesswork at this point anyway lol ><img src=" title=">:O">

One of these days, man. I'm gonna get me one a those. If it's so dirt cheap, it may be sooner than I planned. 8) I'm not banking on it, but it never hurts to hope.

I think we all are. Another twist in AMD's heart. They better get there stuff in place and be ready to release there next gen CPU's on time or they are going to get further in trouble.

I do believe that AMD has something crazy lined up in terms of performance/price, this could mean why Intel is willing to release there newer 1333 FSB CPU's for so cheap ?

Take Care,

Intel is counting on you guys going to quad core... and guys like me going to octa core. That is why the prices for the dual cores are coming down. Just a pity that software cannot play catch up.

You guys are very cynical.

AMD sure can talk the talk about Barcelona. They need to deliver. My estimations are that Barcelona is going to be such a hoot performance wise that Intel is taking counter measures to kill it before it even arrives.

Err.. you guys realize that AMD Barcelona is going to produce a very fast cpu, right? Right?

JT,

I think all of us are expecting Barco to be faster or at least the same.... It would be extremely disappointing if it is not faster than C2D. It is that leap frog game that we all like to play when we were a kid. XP < P4 < A64 < C2D....... and now I would expect Barco to be next in line and then Intel coming back with something and then AMD and then vice versa. It is just the matter of how long they get to hang onto the crown... 6 months, 1yr, 2yrs... or whatever....
