Intel's Sandy Bridge Processor Pricing and Launch Dates Surface

News Editor: Roderick Sam Date: 29-11-2010 [ Print | comment(s) ]  Discuss in Forums

Fresh details emerge of pricing and availability dates for the new line of Intel LGA 1155 processors. 10 are expected to be released on 9th Jan 2011

We can hopefully expect 10 new processors being released on 9th January 2011 ranging from 2.5Ghz - 3.4Ghz (3.8Ghz with turbo boost) for the new Sandy Bridge lineup. Pricing ranges from $127-$317 for the bottom end i5-2400s and the top end i7-2600K which for us UK lot will probably equate to around the same price in pounds (factoring in the VAT increase and that we always pay more for things!). Expect a massive influx of motherboards to be released on the same day all vying for a piece of the market

Interestingly all the initial released chips are quad cores, even the i5ís with the lower end duals, i3's and Pentium processors are expected to release at the end of February.

Time to save some of that Xmas money for the big upgrade in the New Year! Tell us your thoughts on our forum.
