Intel is set to cut their CPU prices to combat Ryzen 3rd Gen

Expect the i9-9900K to get a lot cheaper.



Read more about Intel's plans to cut their processor prices.

Intel is seriously panicking with the upcoming release of Ryzen 3rd gen, which they should be. I’m for one ain’t the slighest interested in Intel CPUs anymore, I’ve personally outgrown them and I’m more than willing to support AMD instead. Highest possible fps isn’t important for me anymore either, so I don’t need to have the most ”bleeding edge” tech.

As long as Zen 2 has no major flaws, I don't see any reason for me to even consider an Intel CPU for many years. The 3700X and a decent X570 motherboard with my current 3200Mhz kit is all that I'll want or need.

So Intel does not consider prices depending on costs, but on real and brutal profit. That's why, when they have competition, they drop prices.

And that's why every Intel CPU should be left of the shelfs.

What do you mean by ”no major flaws”? Even if they do, it can’t be more than Intel has ...

Decent X570 motherboard? Got anyone in mind as of right now or no?...

Do you mean that’s why they should all sell out (ie be left off the shelfs) or not be (ie be left on the shelfs)?

If they aggressively drop their prices to compete with AMD it will show how much they have been creaming the desktop market for the last 10 years.

I'm thinking probably a Gigabyte board for me. since they got slated a bit by Buildzoid, they've massively upped their VRM game and components on both Z390 and now X570.

ASUS is probably the safe choice for "it just works" but i've felt like they are doing a bit of an intel lately and just charging a ridiculous ASUS tax on everything

Cool. I still want a Ryzen, though.
