E6750 vs. E6600

Can someone explain why the E6750 is cheaper than the E6600, but has higher specs such as the 1333 fsb compatibility?

Intel E6600: $243/2.4 ghz/1066 fsb

Intel E6750: $183/2.66 ghz/ 1333 fsb

Prices fluctuate all the time.

Good idea to keep an eye on such things but don't expect a firm answer. It may have to do with what's in the pipe and then newer comes out cheaper and those that sell these are stuck.

I did NOT research the 2 models to see if L2 Cache Sizes were pushing the price around. I'll just note it does.

Could be mobo price difference & availability

In reply to: Prices fluctuate all the time.

A few have purchased the 1333mhz cpu, only to find the 1066 mobo they got with it would not work without a bios update, which required a compatible cpu for the upgrade.

big price difference in these new chips ie.E6750 vs E6700

In reply to: Could be mobo price difference & availability

Both are listed as 775 socket but 1333mhz vs 1066 mhz. The price advantage is tremendous and I wonder if anyone has any experience or opinions with these new chips. I have not found any information about installation on existing boards such as my Intel G965 (love valley G) Viiv motherboard with a 1.86 core 2 duo and I was wondering about updating
Separate question, I no longer see anyway to start a thread and wondered if someone could tell me why I can't it? Maybe I am just blind.
