Intel itself hasn't yet announced a launch date or estimated retail pricing, but PCV's product pages suggest that an announcement will occur sooner rather than later.

Nice… Not a terrible price too should be less than £200 here
Ocuk have had their prices up for 2 days….UK was actually the first to announce prices this time!
oh and £200 is way too low according to the above….try more like £260
Might be time to upgrade the work PC, depending on how much motherboards are. Is this going to be DDR3 only?

Is £260 the crazy preorder price on OcUK? Once it is properly release the cheapest one may be around £200 (I hope).
