Intel's response, though late, has almost reached the deadline for competing against the latest AMD. Comet Lake-S will come to try to bring the sporting crown back to normal, the only focus on the desktop where the Blues can still compete after being hit by HEDT by Threadripper 3.
The Comet Lake-S filtered prices aren't exactly speculative, something that usually happens just before launch, but it does show a good indication of what Intel will be producing.
No problem with 14 nm ++ gaming Intel
The fact is that if we look at the price table in both the filters and stores where they are seen, the prices for the processing will be less expensive. Intel flag, new i9-10900K
It would not be a bad price if it were not for this figure excluding taxes included, in our country it would mean 610 euros. Swan's best economic choice without losing performance in their corals would be its KF range, which lowers the price of VAT-free by 29 euros.
Skip the range, i7-10700K It is set at a price of 389 euros, which in tax should be 470 euros. This is surprising, since it represents a price reduction in the range of over 30 euros compared to the current i9-9900K.
Its KF model will see the price reduced to 27 euros, not bad if we bear in mind that the same benefits are kept under the GPU.
Reduced versions and prices for filling posts
Intel's muscle strength as a company will be significant due to the wide range of PC operating systems that will enter the market with the goal of filling gaps where AMD can compete with the lack of models.
Up to 32 desktop models under LGA 1200 socks, where we will have low-cost versions, non-GPU versions, unlocked versions of overuls and all in 5 separate series.
In the overuls phase, Intel returns to play the strategy for the XX600 series, since very few of the systems will have that capacity of their own i 5-10600KF at a price of 236 euros plus taxes.
The price is close to 300 euros and is ready for sale and according to the latest sources will not be the same i7-10700KF when CPUs include STIM. There are serious allegations that in this case the young KF could have come without burns between his death and the IHS, and therefore would also have associated burns.
This may be influenced by the matrix type available on Intel, so the decision to choose one method or another was never influenced by TDP. Prices are higher than its competitors and most can be sold for CPUs, will Intel ever make the same mistakes as before?
