Compare that to the prices listed here:

It's not just New Egg, either.  Amazon is charging the same prices.  I'm not sure if that means Intel decided to increase the price of their processors or if everyone is expecting a shortage.

    It matters for people who don't already have a Sandy Bridge processor.

    Ya i'm a bit disappointed, i've been holding off for a month under the assumption that the 3570k was going to match or be lower than the 2500k.. :(

     IT is at Microcenter and the Anandtech listing, but not sure on newegg, only thing with microcenter is you have to live near one, it is in-store only.

     edit: Usually it is in-store only, went to look again and it is not on the 3570k, so you may be able to order it online.

     Online only and the closest store is about 2 and half hours away. Not exactly worth it :p

    Anand's info could also have been incorrect.  And since this is intel, there will be no changes in prices in the near future.

     

    So this begs the question, is an i5-2500k a better value than an i5-3570k since performance wise you might be talking about a 7% or so difference but price wise its now 15% difference.

    Well then, let's ask Intel what the MSRP is:

    http://ark.intel.com/products/65523/Intel-Core-i7-3770K-Processor-(8M-Cache-up-to-3_90-GHz)

    http://ark.intel.com/products/65520/Intel-Core-i5-3570K-Processor-(6M-Cache-up-to-3_80-GHz)

    "Recommended Customer Price    N/A"

    Well then, that settles things, doesn't it?  Oh wait.

    Compare that to Sandy Bridge:

    http://ark.intel.com/products/52210

    "Recommended Customer Price    $216 - $224"

    Hmm...

    Interestingly enough, the Ark documents go back to a 77W TDP
