Six Core Sandy Bridge-E Chips Listed by British Retailer
A certain British retailer listed the two hexa-core Sandy Bridge-E chips, Core i7-3930K and Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition. The top-end i7-3960X is priced at 850.79 (including taxes), that converts to around US $1,361. The unlocked Core i7-3930K, on the other hand, is priced at 477.59 (including taxes), that's around US $764. Earlier this month, news surfaced of a Chinese retailer listing these chips. The Chinese put the Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition at the equivalent of US $1,227, and Core i7-3930K at the equivalent of US $912.

While the British store is making the Core i7-3930K at least $150 cheaper, it's still a long shot from the $583 price point that the chip is expected to occupy. On the other hand, the British store is quoting a price that's about $130 higher for the Core i7-3960X. It looks like Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition is increasingly unlikely to come with a three figure price.
