[pcworld] Intel projects decline in chip prices, and AMD's Ryzen is one reason - Page 5

post #41 of 102
The 7700k is still outselling every Ryzen chip in the U.S. (see amazon and newegg best selling). Even the 7600k is outselling the R5 1600, even though the 1600 is a slightly better purchase for gaming and much better at everything else. I don't think Intel needs to lower prices. AMD is going to pick up some share, but Intel doesn't need to do much of anything unless people start scarfing up Ryzen in larger numbers.

But that happens solely because Intel is Intel, just like nVidia is nVidia.

 

A lot of people take the brands by their name more than by what they offer.

Oppose the fact that Intel will see a decline.

Losing market share is bad for any company. So this is going to hurt Intel.

It feels very good to finally see Intel finally taking some beating for their arrogance in sandbagging all their CPUs technology.


But its not enough, we need AMD to make them regret the choice they made for the past 7 years! thumb.gif

It is bad. My point was only that just because they are losing share, it doesn't follow that they should drop their i7s to $230 range as it was suggested earlier in this thread. It would probably hurt more than help their financials.

Intel don't drop prices on anything, they haven't ever, they won't start now

They will however price their next gen according to Ryzen, not as low, but lower

Why do people reference this article? It talks about Microcenter, who always undercuts Intel pricing, they sell a lot of their chips as a loss leader, always have

This....

I have a microcenter near me and their CPU motherboard combo prices are insane....Yes they take a loss on it, but for someone picking up a CPU/mobo is usually looking to build a complete system hence they will need a case, power supply, ram, HDD(possibly SSD with it), fans ,keyboard, mouse , monitor.....Bascially enough other items they can easily make up the loss for undercutting the CPU prices by like 40-50 dollars(on average)...
