Intel Broadwell Core i7-5775C Price Tag Revealed
Gabriel Roşu / 2 years ago
We are nearing the start of Computex and retailers are already eager to list what they have to offer once products get launched. This is the case of Intel’s Broadwell Core i5-5675C and Core i7-5775C CPUs, which will launch during the first week of June.
Before anything else, I would like to point out that all Broadwell processors will feature four cores and come with the Iris Pro 6200 graphics solution. They also have a low power consumption of 65W and we will even see a couple of them compatible with the LGA1150 socket. To clarify everything, all models ending in ‘C’ will have support for the LGA1150 socket, while the ones ending in ‘R’ will only be BGA1364 compatible.
In addition to the latter, the ‘C’ models will be the ones that come with unlocked multipliers, as we previously seen with the ‘K’ and ‘X’ models, and we will only see a 4MB L3 catch with no hyper threading for the i5’s.
Now to the part you were all waiting for. Retailer such as NCIX (via Guru3D) already priced the i7-5775C with a pre-order tag of $499.99. Before you go enraged by the latter price tag, remember that prices are subject to change and even so, they are likely to go down after a while. So what do you think about the current price? Are you willing to spend that much for a Broadwell CPU?
