    Default Sandy Bridge-E and X79 Motherboards Listed on Chinese Stores

    A couple of weeks ahead of its worldwide launch, Intel's much talked about "Sandy Bridge-E" Core i7 processors and compatible motherboards are beginning to surface on an online store in China. Listings include all three of the Core i7 LGA2011 processors Intel will launch in November, that includes the quad-core Core i7-3820, six-core Core i7-3930K and six-core Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition (details on the three here. Apart from these, a few compatible motherboards such as the ASUS ROG Rampage IV Extreme and MSI X79A-GD65 8D, were also listed.

    Before getting into the pricing, it's important to note that prices of components in mainland China, in general, are more or less consistent with those in the US. The top-of-the-line Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition is priced at RMB ¥7,800 (converts to US $1,227). The next best LGA2011 offering, Core i7-3930K, is priced at ¥5,800 (US $912). The most afforable of the three, Core i7-3820, goes for ¥3,500 (US $550).



    VR-Zone comments that at a first glance, these prices seem way off from the earlier speculated prices of around $300 for the i7-3820, ~$583 of i7-3930K, and ~$999 of i7-3960X Extreme Edition. Perhaps noting that AMD's FX processors didn't quite dent the performance processor segment, Intel is flexing its prices for the HEDT (high-end desktop) segment. If worldwide prices of these chips are anywhere close to where the Chinese are putting it, then a lineup of $550, $999, and $1200 chips is looking more likely. Then again, logic dictates that pre-release pricing is unreliable because it gives vendors the ability to make a quick buck out of pre-release orders.

    Moving on to compatible motherboards, the same site is putting ASUS' top-end gamer-overclocker segment offering, the Republic of Gamers Rampage IV Extreme, at ¥5,990 (US $942), and MSI X79A-GD65 8D at ¥2,990 ($420). Again, these prices seem way off. Some European retailers are pre-listing ASRock X79 Extreme4 for as low as €192.40 ($268) and Intel Desktop Board Extreme DX79SI for €266.33 ($372).

    Pricing kono dik diyei bhalo na. Almost $1000 for the cheapest unlocked processor? You ¤¤¤¤xn kidding me?

    I 'm not actually expecting SB-E processors to turn the world upside down. With the currently existing 2500k and 2700K, performance and price can 't just get an better. 2700K packs enough heat to keep AMD out of its tail for 2-3 quarters more at least. R amader er theke bhalo processor nxt 1 bochor e na paileo hobe.

    What i 'm really looking forward to is the introduction of highly capable motherboards along with the 2011 socket. This is where the first wave of Sandy Bridge fell short. P67 and z68 were not by any means ground breaking. X79 is just unbelievable in terms of features, connectivity, expansion..........A deserving replacement for the X58. Finally.
