The price difference in my country is 45EU though, not worth it i.m.o.
Not as far as i can see, using Newegg as my guide
nor is it in the UK yet, with the same deduction technique. April 29th is the release date i've seen banded about.
Going from an i5 2500k to an i5 3570K wouldnt be worth it anyway, for the reason you found out there.
I'd say it depends on price too, if the 3570K is unreasonably priced over the 2500K , then yeah, you may as well just get Sandy it seems.
