This is weird,  a 2700k is the same price as a 3770k  ??

Old tech become too old tech? Prices sometimes just hit a bottom when stuff becomes so old its just replacement parts and there's no real incentive for one person to buy an old chip or slightly older chip, they just get the part they need to replace.

Or something something garbage, slightly newer garbage still garbage, not charging more or less for either.

The CPU prices have bottomed out in price because their value is not in the CPU but the motherboard they go into.

There's tons of those CPUs but few remaining boards and even fewer people looking to invest in upgrading those old systems. Why are they the same price, demand is probably the same and they require the same shelf space.

The single reason Tp4 can fathom is if someone doesn't know how to or want to delid a 3770k, he might get a 2700k,  but , this person is probably not going to push the overclock anyway, so the 3770k will still be faster out of the box... AND AND you get pcie Gen 3 which is a BIG deal for storage.
