Gaming Intel has maintained a performance advantage at this price point

Ah, yes, their, uh... <double checks> Pentiums definitely outperform the 1600 in games.

Posters prices are nowhere near putting the 1600 against a Pentium.

1300X=6700

G5400=6900

2200G=7725

8100=10570

1600=11500

9400F=12500

Until the pricing cut the 1600 was $5-$10 less then the 2600 and in the same bracket as the 8400 and now 9400F including Microcenter pricing.

Making them a very tough sell for any user.

Since the cuts to place them against the I3 and Pentium lines they are more relevant but giving they have been out of production for going on 18 months it is more of a limited time relevance.

Edit: Microcenter has had them under $100 for the better part of six months and still hasn't sold through the remaining stock of the first generation parts and motherboards.
