    Although Haswell processors will be released in June, there's pretty much nothing left that has not been leaked, including photo's, benchmarks, specifications, new technology .. and now the prices ...

    Do we know what kind of TIM Intel is planning on using, cheap paste vs. fluxless solder?

    So it looks like Intel is attempting to not drop the prices of the old processors and are instead just jacking up the prices of the new ones. Go figure. Hurray for monopolies. We always get extra jacked up prices here, so $380 for the 4770K is likely, almost $430 after taxes. Yeah, I'm not too crazy about that price.

    Looks like the 4770K will be about £285, including 20% VAT, here in the UK which is absolutely fine by me. I'll obviously need a new motherboard and CPU cooler too plus I'll add 16 GB of RAM seeing as it is so cheap anyway.

    I'm torn between getting a Core i5-4430 or buying a Vishera 8320/Next gen CPU from AMD and some 4/6 GB DDR 3 1600 or 1866.

    Upgrading from a Q9550 on 4GB DDR3 1000, how much improvement should I expect?

    The problem wasn't the paste, it was the gunk that keeps the IHS on.

    Your comment made me curious enough to check how much the i7-3770K was going for in-store and it seems my local MicroCenter is selling that chip in retail packaging for a super duper low low price of $229!!!

    I may be old school but I remember anything unlocked used to run you around $1000. $380 sounds like a steal to me.

    Bummer, local stores will have an additional 15-20% markup over these.

    The K series exists due to the sole fact that the base clock is linked to too many things and therefore would entirely kill off overclocking if an artificial lock on the multiplier was placed as usual. Those "unlocked" chips of the past could OC using both the multiplier and the base frequency, and they were still daylight robbery.

    It's a steal alright, it's Intel stealing from us because they know they can get away with it.
    Unfortunately for me, there are no Microcenters in Canada.

    Meh, imo Its just not worth the price.. Id rather buy a IB cause really this is just a side grade if its only 7% faster... But then again the heat issues with IB caused me to go to 8350.

    I just dont know if I will ever go back to intel, someday i suppose but to me being only slightly faster isnt worth 200 dollars more for a processor.

    Side grade? Are you judging this by those early leaked Tom's Hardware benchmarks?

    Again, check full architecture preview and its improvements compared to older generations,
    http://www.anandtech.com/show/6355/intels-haswell-architecture/6 (page 6-9)
    imo those leaked benchmark mean squat :p


    Also the price looks right, I only wish intel would release Haswell-E this year. I would rather have a true 8 core :D

    ivy bridge? yeah, cool, enjoy that 65nm controller hub
    it's been the same since 2007-2008

    intel finally goes down to 32nm with the southbridge

    So I wasnt going to buy a new CPU/Mobo, but looking into this maybe me realise that I'm two fab process above the next-gen..... that's just unacceptable (bloomfield 45nm VS haswell 22nm)

    Well, I want to see the OC numbers. That takes the 4770k off of the table for me though. Shame. I would have thought about it at $330.

    So yeah i was waiting for price releases. It seems i can upgrade to the
    Core i5-3570K $234.18 Core i5-4670K BX80646I54670K $256.65
    and then get a mobo, memory (which i might pick up soon since its quite cheap) and a new graphics card for which i am not sure if i should wait for the Titan series to drop in price or just buy the current gen.

    Microcenter has always been the exception than the rule for processor products, for some reason they're always extremely cheaper than any retailer in Canada, US or UK.

    I can't use Microcenter as a meter of how much processors cost because they're cheaper than everyone else by a wide margin.

    With the perception of no serious competition in the CPU market, Intel's been quietly and slowly jacking up the prices of their CPUs. Sandy Bridge CPUs were introduced slightly cheaper than the Ivy Bridge CPUs, and Haswell just continues the trend.

    Here's hoping AMD's next revision of their architecture is enough to slow down this price increase.
