    The article said "costed" and that always sounds weird to me. Other than that, the same people who pay $999 for a processor will probably pay $1500 for one.

    I'm interested to see the performance but I have a feeling it isn't going to be that impressive relative to the price, we'll see I guess :)

    It's 10 cores with HT. No wonder Intel puts the premium extra shiny golden price tag on it.

    I wonder if it's worth the price... i doubt it. I'm waiting for the 6900K.

    Not surprised it'll cost more tbh, be totally worth it to those who actually need more cores for productivity. Or if you want to break some benching world records

    If you need the cores themselves for a workstation, I think people actually go for the Xeons. In my opinion it's just for kicks and people that want to have the fastest 10 core.

    Businesses don't care about price as long as a faster CPU saves them time.

    And of course if it is just for a gaming rig you would be better off with the faster individual cores of Core i7-6850K @ 3,6GHz instead of the 3GHz of top one, since most games will only be using less than 4 cores.

    Just need to look at the price of the 10 core E5, I think it is, the're going for £1200 a pop so I'd expect BW-E to be at least £1000 a throw. Can't see Intel dropping the prices of the 8 and 6 core variant, they'll just introduce a new top tier price.

    If I was going workstation I'd go with one, xeons are generally for servers that need to run 24/7

    Unless they make some tweaks, it will clock like absolute crap. 5960x will go up in price if so.

    i7 5775c was clocking like crap and still beat higher clocked 4790k. This is looking to be a absolute beast.

    I7 6700k too at times, but looks like only because of that extra 128mb l4 cache.

    Lga2011 doesnt have igpu or l4, so i guess it will oc a little better.

    I don't doubt this one bit. As mentioned already, the people paying 1k will pay another $500 to have latest & greatest "shiny".

    Well $1K would make too much sense, it has 10 cores. Gotta charge that premium.

    An Intel 10 core with HT for $1500 USD is fair for that segment I think.
