The significant cost of the new parts surely outweighs noticeable savings from drawing fractions less power?

People keep saying desktops are dead so all the big names are pushing low power CPU's with integrated GPU's and all that other junk we are told people want.

You'd be surprised, it's about 50% faster across the board.
Then again it's been like 6 generations and 7 years since the Q6600.

The 2500k was $216, this new 4670k is $250.
As well as locking off OCing in the low end parts, they've been pushing up the cost of owning a mid range chip too.

I didn't buy into Virtu because most Sandy motherboards I looked at are limited to single link DVI.
