Excelent price! Voted hot

Seems premature to be saying that as until the retail versions are thoroughly tested it's not safe to extrapolate from a few benchmarks using engineering samples. We'll have a better idea next week. :thumbsup:

Its not fair just to compare when most stores haven't listed this yet. This is very unlikely to be the best price on release.

$192 + VAT = £135.

I expect other stores to get closer to this price. I have no idea why people are voting this hot. There is no stock and the store is simply taking advantage of being the first to list the item.

Also as others have mentioned, just because it performs better than say the core i7 920 when overclocked, doesn't necessarily make it an overclockers dream.
#8
Yes not hot for me for the same reason its not in stock at most shops yet and even the ones who dont have it yet but are getting it sell it for the same price just google under shopping:

£162.85 new
LambdaTek

£162.86 new
IT247


£147.27 new
Kikatek

Hardly a hot deal price wise :p

Thats roughly the price I expect the larger online stores to stock the item at.

£147.27 new - Kikatek

Forget Kikatek as they are a bunch of jokers. They often show up on Google Products search with low prices but [SIZE="3"]always[/SIZE] have no stock. I now check them just for a giggle; it’s like searching for Bigfoot. :w00t:
One time they did have a good price on a Sony TV and only 1 in stock so I placed an order and they cancelled it.
Another time it seemed that they had a good price on an Antec case but it turned out the description was wrong and you could buy it 40% cheaper elsewhere. Their postage is often farcically high as well.

Considering that the Q9550 sells for over £160 I think £160+ seems likely for the initial pricing for this. The clock speeds a bit lower (2.67 v 2.83) but it has other advantages including Turbo Boost.
#11
personally i just cant see how this corei5 can better a corei7 when both overclocked? i know a corei7 can hit 4ghz no probs because i've done it - i cant see how the i5 can compete. although there is a turbo mode on these new i5's i was under the impression that although they were quick, i understood them to be, not as good overclockers as the i7 920's. maybe i mis-read something somewhere along the lines.

at this price i think i'd rather pay £50 extra for the corei7 and have a lga1366 board with the support for bigger and better chips with soon-to-be more cores, and also triple channel memory. ok the bigger chips are a lot more expensive at the moment but, technology moves quickly and prices will soon come down.
#12
I'm sure I've seen benchmarks where this (at stock) performs more or less the same as an i7 920.

They are not that's why and at that price i would pay the extra and get the i7 with is way faster and to say these are better clockers than the i7 in nonsense there have been a few benchmarks done with samples provided to the big boys which will perform way better dont forget thats a clocked i5 up against a stock 920 most 920 hit 4ghz when OC without issues. This sort of hype makes people like the OP believe they are a great buy when in fact they are overpriced.

The top i5 is as much as the i7 920 and its no where as fast, i will be on hols next week and have held off till the release of the i5 to see how it stacks up but i will not pay well over the odds to pre order or be one of the first with an i5 and anyone that does must be mental because after release there will be a major rejig on prices of the i5 and i7 or it will kill the i7 market place position.

Now the MSI board I'd read the reviews on this board ages ago on hexus and liked the look of it but since watching the video on hexus I'm not interested in it at all and the £60 odd quid is all its really worth. To say it will come in at a retail price of £150-£160 is utter rubbish that puts this board right up against the X58 boards which are way better speced with tri channel memory and all sorts of other fancy bits and pieces. If the MSI board comes in at that price what you need to ask is what will Asus and Gigabyte sell there top boards for as the market leader Asus will be at least another £50 as will Gigabyte as much as MSI try they are not in the same class as the other two. These first P55 MSI boards have had the new stuff left off that's possibly why there will be a limited number for sale at these lower prices as they where obviously one's they had already built ready for sale until they realised that there was no way to complete with Gigabyte and Asus as they will be including usb3 and sata3.

Yes the i5 750 looks good value at first glance, but when you take into account a new mobo and ram you wont have much change from £350.

If Im upgrading, a AM2+ mobo and AMD x4 955BE can be had for £200 and harvest my current ram.

Then you start thinking £150 spare. Well that will buy me a 4890 or a GTX275. Not looking so good value now.

Hey guys. Can I just add that ths is not a pre-order scheme. This is avialable to buy now and has been sinicr yesterday so those buying yesterday should receive this on Monday just to answer the email I recieved.

I guess you are jumping the gun a bit as it seems as if they shouldn't be on sale until the 8th!
Some US stores made the mistake of selling them weeks ago until Intel had a word in their ear.

This kind of quote is popping up more and more lately, this is a vote, and just like any voting system I don't have to give reason of justification for it,but I will.

How can it be voted as hot when it is not widely available and true pricing has not filtered through,also it is slower than the equivalent i7(Not much,But slower)and about £35 cheaper which is what it was designed to be and about right price wise,so not really a bargain,Now if you see one for about £130 that would be a bargain.
#19
Voted cold for misleading description, not faster than i7, slower for rendering and other things, on a par in games, overclock similar to current i7's. Price isnt hot either.
#20
These cpu should be around £150 when it officially release on 8th September with the boards coming out then

2-4 months? Not getting a new mobo until usb3 and sata3 is released as the P55 and X58 mobo are expensive as it already is :x

I wouldn't be so bothered about USB3 yet. As far as I know, nothing even uses it?

As for the price, and product, I think it's neither cold or warm. I don't think it could really be voted hot when there's no other shops or comparable product to compare the price. On Tuesday we'll be able to see how hot a deal it is..

Core i7 920 is much better. But at a higher price. At only £40 more it is a better buy unless you are hoping to jump on the limited offer MSI P55 launch price.

Even then I would recommend getting the Core i7 860 (will be released on the 8th of September like the i5 750) which will be the same price as the core i7 920 and performs better at stock. We'll find out later which overclocks better (I expect it will be the i7 920).

The core i5 750 is supposed to be in the £150 price range but SVP are taking advantage of being the only store to have broken NDA.

So much premature speculation here. :thinking: Wait until Tuesday when the reviews are out and the picture will be a lot clearer.
If you’re not running software that utilises more than 4 cores than paying a premium for Hyper Threading seems pointless.

So the i5 is quad core and the i7 is 8 cores (octo core?) and what about the i3 dual?

i5 and i7 are both quad core.

The core i7 9xx range have hyperthreading resulting in 8 virtual (logical) cores. By doing this, the 4 real cores are better utlilised.

Interesting how many games have actual be written to support 4 cores? probably less that have been written to support a 64 bit o/s?

Really I did not know that....the only reason why you can even get quad core CPU's is the demand for computer games that actual utilise them you would be stupid to buy this cpu if you where not going to use it to its full potential i.e play games with it. You should try to use your brain before you post.

Of the current generation of games there is little quad core support which is why processors like the E8500 do well in games tests. If you have a quad you can always use task assign to dedicate 2 cores to the game and your system and background services (virus/firewall) to use the other 2 cores.

slinky u dont make sense to me i'm afraid but, gavin is absolutely right. although the majority of games do not support quad core atm i'm sure its only a matter of a small amount of time before that changes. currently dual cores outperform quad cores of similar spec, in gaming.

As expected, on the actual release date (8th September) we have better prices.
