Prices of 8th generation Intel Core "Coffee Lake" desktop processors are expected to be higher than their 7th generation "Kaby Lake" counterparts, owing to increased core counts and L3 cache, but the price increases don't scale linearly. According to prices leaked by German online retailer LambdaTek, the prices increases are noticeable, although marginal. The flagship Core i7-8700K is priced at 389€ (including VAT), followed by the i7-8700 at 327€. On the same store, the current i7-7700K is priced at 349€, and the i7-7700 (non-K) at 313€. The new Core i5-8600K is priced at 273€, and the i5-8400 at 192€. Here, too, the price increases between generations is only marginal, given that the Core i5-7600K is priced at 236€, and the i5-7400 at 182€. The quad-core Core i3-8350K is priced nearly on-par with the six-core i5-8400, at 188€, which is higher than the 164€ commanded by the i3-7350K dual-core chip (you get double the cores and L3 cache). The Core i3-8100 quad-core is the most affordable of the lot, priced at 123€, which again, is only marginally higher than the 119€ the Core i3-7100 dual-core chip asks. These prices bode particularly well for these chips' pricing in the US, and will lock Intel into a price-war with AMD and its highly competitive Ryzen processors.
