$177 or BO:
Intel Xeon E5-2680 v2 SR1A6 2.80GHz 25M LGA2011 10-Core CPU Processor | eBay
but i do notice other sellers are raising price to $185+. So you should get it now. and don't expect much bargaining either. $340-$350 for two is probably about the most you can probably expect at this point
That's interesting that there are several people that's buying like 14+ at once.... wondering if they are building that many workstation on old hardware or hoarding and speculating...
Ahh, the bitter taste of regret. I suspect from here on out this will match the E5-2670 rush a while back, and I don’t expect the prices to go down again. Although a bit part would be how many E5-2670 v2 processors were put in service by the hyper scale crowd - anyone happen to know if that’s where these units are coming from?
Over the past 5 days or so across a few different sellers there’s been at a minimum 60 to 80 of them sold. And then they pop up again (same or different seller) at slowly rising prices.
I never noticed US$185 personally - I saw them go US$177 to US$195 to US$215 which seems to be the current rate. And they follow each other in lockstep on the pricing (which makes perfect sense) Note that I am only counting US sellers (ie. none from China, Hong Kong, etc) and only the few that have actual quantity (ie. not one or two at a time)
I have definitely noticed that (unless they just happen to be getting them decomm’d in lots of 15 to 30) that after the original sellers got their 100+ each out the door, they seem to be releasing them 20 or 30 at a time, let those sell out, then pop up another listing, usually with a slightly higher price. Or is that just me?
