The lowest yet for this CPU (promo code typically valid after 2AM PDT Sunday). No one is matching Fry's prices on Intel CPUs.

https://www.frys.com/product/9339750

# of Cores: 6
# of Threads: 12
Processor Base Frequency: 3.20 GHz
Max Turbo Frequency: 4.60 GHz
Cache: 12 MB
Bus Speed: 8 GT/s DMI3
TDP: 65 W

Price $269 with emailed code for Sunday (or use 2288).

Edited to add: There is some confusion in the ad pricing. It is possible that the above promo code is applicable in store only. See the item in the current flyer at
https://images.frys.com/art/email...n_pop.html

In-store customers can ask for an additional 10-20% off coupon (10% on bare processors) at the entrance until end of Monday.

With the additional 10% off, final price $242 in store.

Note: Some store managers may balk at stacking the above promos together but eventually do it. Bought a Denon X3500H Receiver for $400 yesterday stacking the two promos. Sodid everyone else posting in that thread. Not a one-of.

I belive the promo code is the unique code emailed to subscribers.

The title of this deal is pretty misleading though. It's highly ymmv to (i) get the 10% promo instore and (ii) have someone willing to apply discount in combination with the promo code. I realize OP was able to do this in the past but it won't be true for everyone.

Doesn't work for me either. Might be in store only?

Dont forget about all the new intel exploits. They effect basically every chip intel has made for a very long time. Part of the fix is to disable hyper threading. This now effectively makes this and any other i7/i9 chips i5s.

Even after doing that it doesnt fully fix the issues either. I would avoid intel until all this shakes out. The issue is in the actual silicon and likely cannot be fully patched. This is my opinion from what ive read. YMMV, Ryzen FTW.

Ryzen 2700x is a better deal or just wait for zen 2.

FYI, for those who don't keep a close watch on PC news, Intel recently disclosed that all their chips going back to 2008 have several significant security flaws. Microsoft, Apple, and Linux patches have been released so mitigate these flaws, but they do cause a significant performance degradation. The best comprehensive review I've seen is pasted below.

https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php...-mit&num=7

Since they've said hyperthreading is a security risk I'd probably advise against buying a 8700 chip. You can likely find an 8600K (which can be overclocked) for the same price or less. AMD is also about at parity after these mitigations and the new chips which will be announced next week will likely surpass Intel chips at the same price.

The only way to completely rid yourself of said vulnerability is to disable HT, yes. But it's really not a huge deal for mainstream PC users. It's a difficult hack that allows applications to see into other applications, so as long as your not letting nefarious applications run on your PC, there is no issue. Disabling HT is really a last resort. That said, AMD does not have this problem.

Blown entirely out of proportion. Is there a vulnerability- yes? Is there an exploit - not yet. Likelihood of being exploited - extremely small for the individual user. Far greater chance if you are running a data center, in a shared hosting environment, etc...

It's all about risk, not the fact that something is vulnerable.

thanks good to know. I love my old Q6600 but sounds like Ill look at AMD for the time being for an upgrade.

Not blown out of proportion at all. Some systems are being hit with as much as a 40% performance loss to protect themselves. Apple is telling everyone to disable HT. Do you think thats for no reason?

I personally would wait for AMD's Ryzen 3 specs to officially come out before buying anything Intel, especially given all the vulnerabilities that seemingly keep popping up.

Apple is literally a competitor, in some regards, to Intel. This is an opportunity to throw a shot at then in the name of "safety" or "risk". Don't buy into what Apple says. Follow the money.
