Ivy Bridge Expected Ivy Bridge pricing leaked, stays mostly the same as Sandy Bridge

We're still about four months away from the actual launch, but now we have one of the last pieces to the Ivy Bridge puzzle, pricing. The good news is that Intel seems to be pretty much sticking to its current pricing structure for Sandy Bridge with a few minor changes compared to the Sandy Bridge launch pricing.

We're still about four months away from the actual launch, but now we have one of the last pieces to the Ivy Bridge puzzle, pricing. The good news is that Intel seems to be pretty much sticking to its current pricing structure for Sandy Bridge with a few minor changes compared to the Sandy Bridge launch pricing.

According to CPU World we're looking at identical pricing as for Sandy Bridge for most of the models, with the K SKUs being the exception from the rule here. The upcoming Core i5-3570K is US$9 more than the current Core i5-2500K; although it might be priced the same as the expected Core i5-2550K suggesting that Intel is trying to squeeze out some more cash from high-end consumers that want to overclock their system.

The other model that gets more price is the Core i7-3770K, at least if you compare it to the Core i7-2600K launch price of $317, but it's in fact priced the same as the recently launched Core i7-2700K at $332. As for the rest of the range, well, no big surprises are expected although the pricing only cover the initial launch models and as such we'll have to wait and see how Intel prices the rest of the range which is expected to launch later next year.
