This is good. AMD is finally back, and Intel and Nvidia are slightly panicking. I hope the prices will be coming down for new products.

Although we would all love to see that, I doubt Intel will drop prices because a lot of people will see the Intel name and shell out whatever for it.

Intel will just release something that's faster on a new socket, claim the lead and then charge the prices they have been for ages.

Lower end chips will drop slightly I would imagine, but knowing Intel they will just discontinue the slower older ones and launch new ones.

Intel did the exact same thing through the Athlon years. Their chips were slower, more power hungry, needed expensive RAM (RDRAM) and more expensive yet they still stayed afloat.

Exactly, like I said, they know people will still buy them because it's Intel and Intel can't do no wrong. As my saying goes: A socket change a year keeps the proletariat in fear

But with this Ryzen launch I hope Intel will have lower price for 6900K replacement. I am aiming for a nice music production rig this year, and 6900K is perfect for what i need but the price is just off. Unlike for other production stuff Ryzen is miles behind Intel for music. Current price for X CPUs is ridiculous. Yes 6900K is better than 6850K, but it is not 350€ better.

Yeah instead of a 3% improvement this time it's going to be 4%

Broadwell-E was shortlived then. One thing I don't understand and maybe someone can explain it to me? Why does 4 core Kaby Lake exist on the X299 platform? It seems cheaper to get 1151 or whatever is next.

Is coffee lake still a laptop chip only? They were listed as such earlier but more recent mentions say nothing about it anymore. Six core mainstream chips sound good and should've been released a long time ago, like AMD did. Lastly, and I probably know the answer to this question, is coffee lake a different socket than 1151? (cringe)

@NBD: lol right as rain! Something new and a major improvement has been long overdue.

I don't understand the Kaby Lake X CPU's either, but maybe they are 5Ghz CPU's for enthusiasts. Extreme features for extreme gamers. Or something BS like that.

I think it's Cannon Lake that's supposed to be a laptop specific chip, at least at first.
