Prices of retail 11th Gen Intel Core "Rocket Lake" desktop processors are beginning to settle down close to the "1,000-unit tray" prices on Amazon (US). The 1K-unit tray prices have traditionally served as a de facto baseline for retail prices, and as of today (April 16), we see several SKUs popular with gamers and PC enthusiasts approach levels close to the baseline. This wouldn't strictly be a price-cut, since they are still higher than the baseline, but would be a trimming of the retailer mark-ups traditionally attached to new processor launches.

As of this writing, the retail Core i7-11700K is listed on Amazon (US) for USD $404, practically identical to the $399 1K-unit tray price. The i7-11700 (non-K) can be had for $339.99, very close to the $323.99 tray price. The Core i5-11600K is going for $264.99, which is almost identical to the $262 tray price. Lesser "locked" SKUs such as the i5-11500 are within $10-15 of their tray pricing. It's only the top-dog Core i9-11900K and i9-11900KF that remain heavily marked up by sellers on Amazon. At these prices, the 11th Gen Core processors are expected to apply pressure on sellers of AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors to review the prices of SKUs such as the Ryzen 7 5800X and Ryzen 5 5600X; and on AMD to release cheaper Ryzen 5000 series SKUs in the retail channel.

I do like that people are hating on intel though there are some sweet deals to be had.

That 10900F @ $350 with turbo limits removed is bonkers.

Yeah the issue is these prices though don't translate to the rest of the world, that's where I'd argue an even bigger demand is coming from! And the biggest selling point of Intel chips IMO is their IGP.

I think there are just as many people, if not more who love Intel and hate AMD. The difference is availability. Intel has enough fab capacity to crank the chips out. Idle fabs cost money too. They will sell the chips for slimmer margins to keep those fabs busy. AMD doesn't have to worry about empty fabs anymore. They have to worry about getting enough allocation to meet demand.

I cannot believe that even one person would choose to buy this, like you have to already be kinda in the space to build a pc so you know these are just...well...to quote GN "a waste of sand" apart from MAYBE the 11600k but even that one I would not feel happy about getting.

That was quick, RL has only just been released. I wonder how long until they're on deep discount as no one buys them. :laugh:

I have to get a new PC - as Graphics cards cannot be bought at sane prices I will probably buy the 11500 what is the cheapest of the 11 series with the better IGP - UHD 750. AMD has better CPUs but a lot more expensive and has no IGP. (IGP - CPU integrated GPU)

I don't know of a single person that bought a 10 series chip for the IGP. I would happily trade IGP for 2 more cores.

Even IGP less a 10 core skylake that sits at turbo for $350 (only $50 more for 5600x) is an amazing amount of gaming performance.

If you really need the IGP then the 10850K is about $375.

It not that they're worse perse, just that the improvements to not justify a full generational jump.

That has been said time and again each time AMD made big strides. Intel will bounce back as they always have. And when they do, it will be a great level competition in the industry which will be good for all of us.

rocket lake seems to be decent competition for amd. however, most enthusiasts I know are waiting for socket 1700 with DDR5. get on with it already Intel. Bring DDR5!!!

Its pretty amazing if you are a company capable of getting shittier but newer chips out to the public in these times and STILL present discounts.

Intel will keep its market share by sheer force of numbers here even if they produce gutter trash...

There are some great deals to be had, no denying that. But there's also no denying that this generation is not worth a penny over 10th gen, and that Intel is pretty lucky AMD went sicko mode with their pricing/availability, since they have the better CPUs.

Thank you Rocket Lake for existing so 10th gen chips are now cheaper, I can comfortably recommend 10th gen budget builds to others who are just looking to get a PC and are not that worried about upgrades. Other than that, massive failure. The flagship is a turd not worth buying.

yep, i expect something like that, maybe we can have smaller gap between Intel and AMD so we have better option in the future

Imho, right now is simply not a good time to buy tech. We know both Intel and AMD will be moving to new platforms soon, so pretty much everything available right now is going to be the end of the road for said platforms. Sure, there are some rumours that AMD might have a Zen 3+ or something along the lines of that, but so far it doesn't seem to be something they've shared with the motherboard makers.
Sure, if you really, really need to buy a new computer, by all means, go ahead, neither option is going to be crap at least, but for anyone that's looking at getting something that they might be able to upgrade a couple of years down the road, the current platforms are not a great choice.
Then again, DDR5 is highly likely going to be costly for at least a couple of years and it seems like the first batch of Intel boards will only see DDR5 on the very high-end models, as the board makers are expecting high costs and low demand. No idea what AMD is working on with regards to that, but maybe they'll do something similar to Intel and integrate two memory controllers so we get DDR4 and DDR5 boards.
