Cuts price for Core i3-2120 and Pentium G850 and G630
Intel has officially updated its price list and thus introduced the latest Core i7-2700K CPU. The updated price list also includes lower prices for Core i3-2120 CPU as well as the Pentioum G850 and the G630.
Details regarding the Core i7-2700K have been known for quite some time, but if you somehow missed it, the i7-2700K is a quad-core that works at 3.5GHz, has 8MB of L3 cache and a 95W TDP. The Core i7-2700K is a mere 100MHz faster than the Core i7-2600K and will be available with a US $332 price tag (1k-unit tray quantities), just as we wrote before.
This price tag places the Core i7-2700K a tad above the Core i7-2600K, with a $15 price difference. The Core i3-2120 got a small price cut to US $117 while Pentium G850 and the G630 parts dropped to US $75 and US $64, respectively.
