[citation][nom]Ragnar-Kon[/nom]Make one of those "P" processors with a "K" attached and I am sold. Unlocked processor without the graphical portion (which I'll never use) for a cheaper price? Yes please.Should be interesting to see how much better the i5-2550k is compared to the i5-2500k.[/citation]
According to this: http://www.anandtech.com/show/5475/intel-releases-seven-sandy-bridge-cpus "You may be wondering what the P at the end of two Core i5 SKUs stands for. Intel has not updated their product database yet so we aren't 100% sure, but VR-Zone is reporting that it implies a GPU-less model. VR-Zone is also stating that the i5-2550K is GPU-less as well, which would be a step down from the i5-2500K that features Intel HD 3000 graphics." It may be the case that the 2550K doesn't have functional graphics.

You do realize that this is all AMD's fault?
If they had come out with a real ass kicker in the Fall, Intel would have had to gear up and compete. Instead all they have to do now is release all sorts of variations to clear out impaired production.
