Not that insane. Increases in IPC for generations after Sandy have been "mediocre" (putting it charitably). So they've held their value well.Problem is, everything I find is just insane on price considering how old it is! It came out in 2011, finding a good quadcore for it should cost no more than $100, but everything I've found is vastly overpriced (almost $300 for an i5-2500, $250 for an i5-2320).
