Sandy Bridge prices

"Hello, I'm Sandy Bridge"
If you were wondering how much Sandy Bridge processors would cost, Expreview has the answser for you.

They have a nice little table chart, so take a look at it if you want all the details. With prices ranging from $64 for the Pentium G620 (2 Cores, 2.6GHz, 3MB of L3, no HyperThreading, no CPU Turbo) to $317 for the Core i7-2600K (4 cores, 8 threads, 3.4GHz with Turbo up to 3.8GHz) there's something for everyone.

However it's unfortunate that if you want the full chip with 4 cores, HT and Turbo, there's nothing below $294 (Core i7-2600). This is a clear sign of a lack of competition in this space. Hopefully, things will improve in Q2'11 with Bulldozer, but until then…
