I'm toying with the idea of a full system upgrade in the next couple of months, and as it's Friday afternoon I thought I'd do a little bit of window shopping. I was checking prices for the i5 6600K and i7 6700K and I have to say that I'm absolutely staggered at how expensive they've become - the 6600K is currently about £225 and the 6700K is around £360! That's absolutely bonkers, especially as the 6600K launched at about £195 and has gone up by about 15% since lauch! What's worse is that a lot of retailers don't even have stock available at the moment. Is this just a case of supply being limited so the prices are being forced up, or is there something else going on? It just seems crazy that prices have spiked to such a degree since launch. I have to say that it makes Skylake look rather unattractive - I could get a 4690K for £170, rather than pay 30% more for the 6600K.
