i7 to be discontinued.....

Is this BS...?

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/hardwar...920-940-cpus/1

Been pondering on wether to upgrade to i7 920 D0 revision from my ES 920 but stumbled across this whilst looking for reviews....

This was one of my biggest concerns with the i7 in the face of i5/i3.

If it does turn out to be true, i7 cpu prices will rocket and it's outrageous.

I would accept in terms of sanity, that something like a "Pentium" i7 comes out (not pentium, but u know what I mean).

Nop not BS.

Apparently the new I5 lineup is catching up with the lower value I7 CPU's so get rid of the cheap I7 CPU's and charge a fortune for quicker ones simple business practice tbh.

It was announced months ago in a road map that the life of the i7 would be very short.

I'm glad i didn't splash the cash and upgrade.
