Pretty sure there was a promo code about two weeks ago that brought it down to $329, it didn't last long though. Saw it one evening, was gone the next morning.

I saw it going for $309 on ebay one time, and not a one-off used seller either.

Regardless, pretty cool. Only took 9 months!

I got mine at newegg for $335 with instant promo code not too long ago. I hope the 7700k is slower than the 6700k so I won't regret my retail purchase price of a one year old component. I heard stock clocks is at 3.6 with boost to 4.0 but I don't remember the performance.

FYI, I can't upgrade my CPU again for the next 5 years or so. Hopefully I hit the sweetspot but that 3.6 to 4.0 looks very clean at least numbers-wise.

Is that 7700K going to be Kabylake?

There's no way a 7700K will be slower than a 6700K.

So 6700K is only MSRP now while I enjoyed my 4790K for almost 2 years already? I think I got the better deal.

I was endlessly waiting for Skylake when the 4790K hit Microcenter's retail shelves for $250. Every man has a price. I am glad I didn't wait any longer.

Today, 16GB DDR4 3200 (TridentZ) costs $75. I bet early adopters of 6700K would have needed to pay $140-150 for that August-December of last year. Double hit.

Don't worry, Kabylake will be along shortly to jack the price back up :awe:

I doubt it, 14nm yields at Intel are pretty solid now, we won't see the availability issues w/ Kabylake that we saw with Skylake.

The "price jacking" will happen over on the HEDT platform. $1569 for a 10 core, anybody? :p

Nice article. No wonder Intel's sales are down. They don't care about the customers any more. Only about pushing their "segmentation".
"K" SKU sales have been quarter after quarter hitting record highs. Try again.
