European Coffee Lake CPU pricing leaks

It looks like Coffee Lake is more expensive than its Kaby-Lake counterparts.



Read more on Intel's leaked Coffee Lake prices.

€390 for the 8700K is not terrible, but I see no excuse to not charge the €330 of the 7700K. We've had high clocking six core CPU's for years now. They can't be that hard to produce and engineer.

I still think Intel have missed the Ryzen memo. If you calculate the price VS cores this costs the same or more than the 7700K. So they haven't dropped the price at all.

I suspect the 8700K will come very close to an R7 1700 though. Of course, the 1700 is still €80 cheaper (not to mention the cheaper motherboards and future-proofing), but I don't think the 8700K is the R5 1600 competitor. I have no idea how the 8600K will perform.

It can beat a 1700 and AMD won't care. End of the day the 1700 costs £100 less lol. £280 at last check. 8700k will cost £380 right? or was it 389 Euro and therefore £389.

It's just silly money. I don't think Intel realise just how many reviewers have fallen for Ryzen. I really don't. I know a guy who absolutely abhors AMD and has never bought an AMD CPU before and just bought a 1700 lol.

We all know people from the different camps. I built a system for a friend recently and he picked out a few components for himself. I corrected him where parts where incompatible, but when it came to Ryzen vs Kaby Lake, he just didn't want an AMD CPU no matter what I said, and I didn't want to push him. He's not an unreasonable fanboy. He simply has always bought Intel and that's all he knows. That same logic applied to the question of Geforce of Radeon. Instead of the question, 'What GPU are you rockin' in your system?' we may as well be asking, 'What Nvidia GPU are you rocking?' AMD does not register as even an option. He thinks AMD is alien.

And my older brother, he's one of the smartest men I know. He's been in the PC race longer than I have, but when Ryzen was released, I asked him what he thought of it, and he said he wasn't impressed. I agreed that the gaming performance wasn't in the same league as Intel (at the time that was true; the 1800X was a lot more expensive than the 7700K and was significantly behind in almost every gaming benchmark). But he then said the i7 would beat Ryzen in multitasking. I didn't counter him. I just sat there quietly thinking to myself, 'This guy got me into PC gaming and building and I don't think he's even looked up any of the benchmarks.'

I remember four years ago when I was first got into DIY PC building, I asked him what GPU I should get. His answer? 'I've always bought Nvidia.' So I bought a GTX 770. I didn't question. I just went with it. AMD didn't register at any point in my build. So Intel doesn't need to know that reviewers and enthusiasts have fallen for Ryzen. From what I see, the masses still think Intel is the only producer of processors worth buying.
