AnandTech: Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 and Massive Price Cuts
the G0 stepping chips are CHEAPER to make, while is cooler, and emits less heat..... which is why its so cheap along with the reason to be competitive with AMD, but even if its not the G0 stepping stuff for $266 who cares.... a quad-core is a quad-core!!! in fact i'll bring b1gapl or sora an expert here... at the forums, and we'll get his opinion
It's not even worth the effort to try to expain simple economics to some people who are barely entering puberty. I will not waste my time or effort in trying to explain why the G0 stepping will be 10 times better than the B3 stepping.
Look bottom line is this. You will not see a new G0 stepping for the 1k unit price that intel is selling them to the distributors. The distributors than have to sell them to the retailers. As I have said several times a business that does not make a profit on products will not remain a business. Back to the basic economics.
At the end of the day you can spend your lawn mowing money on whatever you want. I just don't want to see people whinning and crying on the forums when their q6600 wasn't the $266 price that you seem to think that Intel can direct retailers to sell for. Additionally I don't want to see people crying about how thier q6600 is running hot and they cannot overclock past 3.3ghz.
I won't even begin to go into why Intel has no power or authority to direct retailers on the prices they are to sell products for. To put that in simple terms.. Intel CANNOT order or force Newegg to sell CPUs at a specific price.
Take it or leave it I really don't give a rats ***. Believe me or don't again I don't care. It's your money you can spend it on whatever you want.
