Default Re: Core i7 LAUNCH CONFIRMED - November 16, 2008

There are many rumors about prices like this:
Intel Core i7 920 2.66 GHz US$284
Intel Core i7 940 2.93 GHz US$562
Intel Core i7 965 Extreme Edition 3.2 GHz US$999

The above are estimated prices for thousand-unit tray but they usually are about the same like street prices after the initial demand is met.

PCVOnline located in Canada are jumping the gun with pre-orders
Intel Core i7 920 2.66 GHz $339.95 CAD
Intel Core i7 940 2.93 GHz $649.95 CAD
Intel Core i7 965 Extreme Edition 3.2 GHz $1,099.95 CAD

At today exchange rate the above prices in USD are about:
340.00 CAD = 285.00 USD
650.00 CAD = 545.00 USD
1,100.00 CAD = 923.383 USD

I'm thinking about the pre-order, one off the location in Downtown Toronto is about 5 min away from me.
On the other hand if the NCIX located in Vancouver would match the price I would save 8% Provincial Sales Tax added to the above prices.
