Angry WTF! July 22nd and No E6x50 Series on Newegg

What gives?? I thought out of all the websites, Newegg would have the new CPU's ready to go by July 22nd. This is BS.

Edit: My guess is that they are trying to sell off their old stock so they don't lose money. Kind of pi$$ed about this... better be out atleast by the end of next week.

haha, other websites seem to be selling them. But this actually works out with my schedule... I have about 3 exams/final exams coming up within the next two weeks... If I order the CPU now, dang... I know I'll be distracted wanting to build right away. I guess I'd rather order them in a week so I do well on my exams... haha.

Why is the E6750 around $215 and the E6700 $300+? Every place I've looked the E6750 is cheaper when every review places the E6750 ahead of the E6700 by a smidgen.

Am I right to assume within a few weeks the E6700 will be a little cheaper than the new E6750?

Sorry if this has been discussed or answered to death.

I guess they are hoping some noob will come along and buy the e6700. I'm sure they paid more for the e6700 than they did for e6750... so yeah.

Of course it will drop, but I'm just annoyed that it wasn't July 22. They obviously have a plan, the big sites aren't selling them yet.... and I'm sure they have a good reason for it.

Edit: I bet they made some more $$$ (today) from impatient people who saw there was no new CPU's on Newegg today and purchased some 2.13ghz c2d. I bet by the hundreds. lol

Maybe newegg doesn't want to loose money for its initial processor investments.
