    To much!

    But those are opening gate prices so there's plenty of room to settle.
    My prediction is 180 and 140USD respectively.
    Step aside, and you won't have to feel the awesome wrath of my mustache!

    The pricing of the 920 seems ridiculously sweet. The Q9400 (not the 9450, but 9400) is 270USD at it.


    940 could drop slightly, though. But I guess that's the "Black tax" or whatever.

    For flame bait, this isn't very well disguised.

    With no valid source this thread is just as good as a source from the Inquirer or Fudzilla

    Sweet. Really hope this drops prices on C2Q's.

    For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream.

    Those are european prices. The source from whom I got the prices is an employee for a certain OEM company that would not like to be named.

    lol.

    the prices are actually what i expected them to be would be nice if the 940 dropped a bit but the 920 is an excellent choice at 230.

    For the average joe the prices are good, tunned acording to the competition.

    But for an enthusiast, those prices are not very atractive. I wouldn't pay more than $200 for a P2 that works stable 24/7 OC-ed @3.6GHz.

    I don't want to sound argumentative solely for the sake, so I'll admit that at this point I'm not entirely certain if even 3.6 will be consistently stable for PhII at this point. So that's actually quite a liberal estimate.

    But, I'd say that even for the general "overclocking" community a 3.4 ghz quad (let's just say) that will run cooly will be well received. Especially when it's compatible with existing boards that AFAIK are fairly good at this point as they've been out so long (Bios wise more specifically).

    Hell, I typically only run my Q6600 at 3.2 despite it being capable quite easily of 3.6. Simply don't need the extra power for anything ATM so I'd rather have it run a bit cooler.

    For truly "Xtreme!!!@! ) users however, these won't be particularly appealing other than for the sheer sake of variety. Which won't go very far. But of course, all of this is moot if you personally define enthusiasts as that top .1% of extremely high end users.

    The $230 model does that. Probably goes up to 3.8 with tweaking. Obviously 24/7.

    Correction; a very incomprehensive list of retailer prices in Finland only. Chips are systematically more expensive here...

    For general price comparison between Finland - central europe - US:
    Q6600 in Finland: 175€
    Q6600 in central europe: 152.5€
    Q6600 in US: $175 (125€)

    i7 920 in Finland: 269€
    i7 920 in central europe: 242€
    i7 920 in US: $285 (205€)

    We have 10-15% higher prices than in central europe, and 30-40% higher than in US. So I'd expect P2 940BEs would go for ~220-230€ in central europe and around $260-270 in US, once there's actual availability.
    You were not supposed to see this.

    The prices seem very reasonable, theres currently quite a big gap in the Intel lineup between $200 and $300 (Q9400 only) and AMD exploits this beautifully. Maybe this will get Intel to finally put their Q9x50 chips below the $300 mark, either that or they will need higher frequencies from the Q9x00 chips in order to compete on a price/performance level.

    It is faster and consumes less energy. Why would it cost the same ?
    I guess you have no clue about price positioning since you state this "as a fact"

    Sorry but as a fact, AMD will not base their pricing policy according to your personal preference...

    ....

    At 220-240$, 920 will really be a sweet CPU to have. Its a very competitive price for a new build, especially if you drop in the overall platform cost. Of course, intel will be forced to cut prices on their 9X50 chips to compensate (the prices for 775 cpus can only go down anyway). More competition, better prices, good for all of us...^^

    tehehe, i thought they would.


    I must be realistic i know buy wouldn't it be great if they did cost in about the same price range.

    I agree, it'll be cool for the modest OC-ers. Although a P2 @3.4GHz next to my i7 @4GHz(24/7) wouldn't look so cool, it'd be so fun to play with it The problem is the price, which IMO is high considering the competition.

    People who were playing with the retail P2 said that most of the P2 940BE are capable of running 24/7 @3.6GHz, but that isn't the case with the P2 920.

    I made a thread about this, right when representatives from PLAISIo confirmed the P2 availability. But I don't know why the thread was deleted.

    Actually, they would make a killing with a Q6600 equivalent price, but considering the expensive build process, the starting silicon yields and their overall (estimated and known) performance point, it is both wiser and more realistic to price them in the 220-280 range, especially since it seems they are similar/better than 9X00 parts which have the same price.

    Intel will cut prices on 9450 and 9550 to handle the gap, and hopefully, we are going to have a price war...^^

    +1. I compare European and US prices quite often and I'd also say by seeing the finnish prices that 940BEs will go for ~260 - $270 more like 270 but then pretty soon settle for $260. And at least Germany will have some shops selling them for 220~230 EUR. If that's the case then it's very great deal I think concidering the cost of AMD motherboards too. The Q6600 will still be a problem though as long as they ship those 65nm quads but if they wouldn't exist and be sold this cheap AMD would sell a lot of these 2 CPUs.

    Nobody has touched a 920 in retail AFAIK.


    The closest guy who has a model is "initialised" on XS I think.
