    If you look at the Haswell-E CPUs the entry level 6core i7 has gone down in price compared to the previous generation of LGA-2011 CPUs. Plus the reason why the 5775c CPU is more expensive is because of the Iris pro graphics chip it has.

    And this goes for those scared of Nvidia's dominance as well.

    The Nvidia Ti 4600 launched in 2002 for $399, which today with inflation is $525. The Nvidia GTX 9800 launched at $549. So no real change in thirteen years, despite the clear leadership of Nvidia in the market.

    Take into account also that Nvidia spends nearly a huge amount more on Research and Development for those cards than it did in 2002. In 2002, it spent $153.2 Million on R&D, or $201.5 Million adjusted for inflation today, per year. Today, it spends $1.36 BILLION on R&D.

    So seriously guys, stop complaining all the time. Rooting for the underdog will get you nothing but an inferior product. Welcome to an open market.

    Those aren't Intel prices, those are your retailers raising prices on their own, Intel still sells the chips for the same amount as I've said.
