Never thought that Intel’s CPU is more valuable than the iPhone

These last two days, Tony in the idle fish happy to pick up trash, suddenly found a particularly amazing thing. Those years ago Intel CPUs were still ridiculously expensive. Take the i7-8700, for example. Now the idle fish price is still more than 1200 yuan. You know, four years ago its listing price was only 2999 yuan.

Putting aside the warranty, the actual performance of this CPU is not as good as the i5 12400 at the same price, Cinebench R23 score, i5-12400 single-core 1623 points, multi-core 12,454 points, i7 8700 single multi-core only ran 1146 points and 7969 points.

The most critical thing is that Tony went to Taobao to look around and found that these businesses selling disassembled pieces alone can sell hundreds of pieces every month, so why is the i7-8700 being sold so expensive?

Not only the i7-8700, a brief check of Intel’s 9th, 10th and 11th generation CPUs revealed that the performance of the old CPUs is a bit outdated in terms of price ……

Behind this, is there a conspiracy of Intel cutting leeks? Is it possible that Huang’s black hand has also reached into the CPU field?

This problem, ultimately, or Intel to change the motherboard for too diligently. First of all, Intel CPUs are not just looking for a piece of the motherboard on it can be used, they do not support the same motherboard, usually, a generation of CPUs will only support about two generations of motherboards.

In other words, the motherboard used for the 8th generation Core is not compatible with the current 12th generation Core, so if you want a new processor, you have to pay for a new motherboard first.

This leads to the CPU and motherboard prices become a relationship between the two, some old CPU prices are high because it supports a wider variety of motherboards and cheap, while some old CPU prices are low, but also because the motherboard support is small and a little expensive.

Take the i7-8700 to say, although its performance is completely behind the 12th generation i5 at the same price, but it is not very picky motherboard, from Z390 to H310, all can be grasped.

Even the noble ASUS loser’s eye Z390 motherboard, the used price is only about seven or eight hundred, and those B and H motherboards are even more cabbage, three or four hundred can buy a good one.

In addition, the i7 8700 and 8700K are also the most powerful CPUs that natively support Windows 7, which is the best choice for those who are not used to Windows 10.

The price of colder CPUs is far worse, like the i7-6700, which is only two years behind, but the price has shrunk by almost half, and you can buy it for as little as 700 or 800.

Imagine if you set up a computer in 2017, then to save money, only used the i5 CPU, as the days go by, you find that the old horse running games and so a little out of breath.

What most people want is definitely a new horse, and the motherboard representing the saddle will be removed and continue to be used by the new horse, without spending more money.

Unfortunately, the motherboard bought at the time is not compatible with the current CPU, you have two options, one is to replace the motherboard and CPU together, the other is to replace an old high-performance CPU.

But the former not only cost more money, but also need to re-install the system, plus the effort of alignment and cable, almost equal to a re-installation of the machine, how much trouble to be more trouble.

The latter is very simple, remove the heat sink, open the cover to replace the CPU, and then apply a silicon grease and you’re done. And like the performance of the 8th generation Core i7, get today is completely enough to handle the work and play a game is also more than enough, I believe that many partners in the case of hands-on ability is not strong enough, will prefer the latter, saving time and money and effort.

In fact, Tony in looking for information, also saw a lot of people complaining, why Intel’s old motherboard is not compatible with the new processor. Installed when you buy more than a thousand two thousand motherboards, after a year or two to be eliminated, although also out of second-hand to salvage a little loss, but still will be a little bit of meat pain.

This problem needs to be seen from two aspects. First of all, at the technical level, the CPU needs to rely on the motherboard those dense pins to power, Intel in the 8 generation Core after increasing the number of cores, in order to ensure the stability of the power supply, you have to increase the number of pins.

And each generation upgrade, Intel will add new features and functions in the CPU, the old motherboard in production certainly can not anticipate these changes, only the subsequent new motherboard tailored specifically for it to be fully compatible.

At the business level, Intel’s changes in each generation of Core have driven a huge market for motherboards, manufacturers willingly give Intel publicity in order to sell new motherboards, and affordable board U kits have attracted more users, naturally allowing sales of new CPUs to continue to rise.
