Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
If you haven’t yet had a chance to check out the Intel Core i7 4770K performance preview news article we did then be sure to do that before you proceed with reading this to make sure you know what kind of performance the new Haswell flagship processor will bring.
Just a day after that sneak performance preview we now have some information on pricing. The i7 4770K has made its way onto a couple of Dutch e-tailers that specialise in selling PC components. One website, MaxICT, is selling the new Intel flagship for €331 which translates into £283 and $428 based on current exchange rates. Another website, TakeItNow, is selling the same Intel i7 4770K for €351 which translates to $454 and £300 based on current exchange rates.
If we consider that the Core i7 3770K currently has a UK price of £260-£280 then seeing a potential price of £280-300 for the i7 4770K isn’t totally unrealistic. It is also worth noting that pre-order pricing tends to be significantly higher than actual pricing when the product hits the market. Therefore we wouldn’t be surprised if the actual market price was something alone the lines of €320/£275/$380.
Intel’s Core i7 4770K will have four cores, eight threads, a 3.5GHz base clock, a 3.9GHz boost clock, 8MB of cache, Intel HD 4600 graphics and an 84W TDP (an increase from the 77W on Ivy Bridge!?).
What do you think of that pricing for Intel’s new flagship? Is €330/£280/$430 fair? Would you/ will you be buying it at that price? What do you think would be a fair price? Let us know your thoughts.
