I think they will be at least at the pre-drop BW-E prices, £$400+ for the bottom Sandy-E, the Kaby 4 core may be 360ish, but probably at least a little more than a 7700k

With all the extra core counts we might see the 8 core models drop a bit, charging 3 times the price of an 8 core ryzen is a bit much after all

I think you are right about the coffeelake 6 cores, i dont think they will charge any more than $50 more than the top 115x chips have been going for, 6 core will just become the new norm, we have already seen them add hyperthreading to pentiums at virtually no price increase this gen

Yeah I mean I am personally expecting the 12-core 7950X to be $1499, and the 10-core 7900K to be $1199 at the most. Any more and AMD will take major HEDT marketshare.

The Broadwell-E price cuts are far more significant than this silly thing

6800K - £409 down to £339
6850K - £577 down to £409
6900K - £977 down to £835 - still a tough sell now with ryzen out
Still ain't seeing it in effect, BUT the 6800K would almost be sensible, at 300£ it would be sensible and a very balanced cpu but on a dead platform,... :(

I don't want to comment on UK pricing, but at least in USD I think it should be:


-6950X = $999
-6900K = $549
-6850K = $399
-6800K = $299

^Same goes for the Skylake-X replacements.


The problem is it costs Intel more money than AMD to make the equivalent products (AMD has better yields, and their CCX design saves even more money). Thus I don't think Intel could even do these prices while making a decent profit. I would argue they should lose some profits to keep marketshare though....
Fun question: Do you think Skylake-X will be priced above or below these Broadwell-E prices?

Personally I don't think Intel is just preparing for AMD's x299, I think they are also softening the blow of the massively lower prices the Skylake-X and Coffeelake CPU's will have. I fully expect 6-core Coffeelake i7's to be under $349.
Skylake-X will maintain the new pricing listed above. ~
do keep in mind they've made the chips Worse! less cache, less pci-e lanes and god knows what else they've done. :)
They ought to have done a lot of improvements to make up for less cache on these new models :)

I see some Finnish PC shops have already dropped its price, originally from ~210eur to ~175eur. Still tho, my G4560 cost over 100eur less and I'd say that overclocking capability isn't worth the extra price. :mad:
