Intel Ivy Bridge desktop CPU pricing leaks

We recently got a peak at the pricing of Intel's mobile Ivy Bridge lineup and now the pricing for the Ivy Bridge desktop CPUs have leaked. This next-gen family of processors is based on the new 22nm 3D Tri-Gate architecture and the leaked Intel roadmap earlier this month revealed that the processors can be expected to arrive in the second quarter of next year.

The wholesale pricing leaked gives a good idea as to which next-gen processor falls in line with the current-gen Sandy Bridge processor. The pricing ranges from the lower-end Core i5 models starting at $184 to $332 for the Core i73770K that sports an unlocked multiplier for overclocking.

Most of the pricing for the new models fall right in line with current-gen models, except for the Core i5-3570K, which is priced at $225 compared to $216. Intel also continues to offer energy efficient "S" and "T" models without a premium on pricing. Most models are expected to be available in April with the dual-core Core i5-3470T expected in May.
