"It is expected that three new Intel processors in the 9000 series would launch October 1st, the Core i9 9900K and i7 9700K. Fot three models prices have been spot here in the EU."

The 9900K is priced almost twice of what it's worth! :thumbsdow :wth:


Another Source


The 9900K is still overpriced, as the 7820X is $449. The 9900K's score is just very slightly higher than the 7820X... Come on Intel. Who are you fooling here? :buttkick:

A little bit high those prices, IMHO.
Let's wait for other sources and I think that some months after the worldwide launch on the market they will possibly be lower. If those prices remain so high, I will not probably buy anything.

There is no way that hyperthreading add that much to the price also the price of a 8core is more expensive than a 7820x

They can forget it at those prices, they gotta get real and cut them in half literally. The 8/16 C/T costs as much as competition's 16/32 C/T? LOL :D

It's probably a shop's temporary placeholder price on a listing that again as always was accidentally made public instead of private.

An 8 core 16 threads is not worth more than 400 USD/EUR. Around 300 EUR is reasonable.

An 8 core with 16 threads that can boost to 4.7Ghz on all 8 cores out of the box is definitely worth at least $500. Intel's Coffee Lake IPC is 3.6% faster then Ryzen refresh when both clocked at the same exact speed.

A 2700x is 8% faster than a 8700k both at the same exact speed.

I think it's safe to say that those placeholder prices are just that, and thus fake.


732 € for a 9900K and 567 € for a 9700K? Right...

These are not RRP from Intel.

I predict $350 for the 9700K and $450 for the 9900K.

Still, at my prices the 2700X will still just smile, sit back and continue to take market share. By the time these release, the price of the 2700X could drop to $275.

Bingo and with black friday around the corner amd will probaly offer a juicy sale like last year on all 2000 series cpu.

Intel can't afford to pull of past prices or even Nvidia style like prices. They need to be somewhat sane on pricing this time around.

I'm hoping for $50 or more cheaper than that, even. At least for the 9700K, it would seem like a downgrade at the $350 price point from the current 8700K.

With eight real cores, the 9700k won't be a downgrade versus the 8700k in most applications assuming similar clock potential. The pricing can't be based off of pure potential, though, simply because most users don't overclock or watercool, which is what the 9700k and 9900k are going to require to really stretch their legs over Ryzen. At stock they'll be extremely impressive chips, but not so impressive that the 2700x wouldn't seem more enticing at half the price or less.

The 9900k at $400 that could hit 5ghz without going crazy overboard on voltage would be a nice upgrade from my 7700k at 4.8ghz. I was actually going to wait for next year for Zen 2 and Navi to help support the underdog, but its tempting to upgrade to a 9900k and a 2080Ti and finally go for the miniITX build I've been wanting to do and ditch my mid tower. I also hear that the 9700k and 9900k will be soldered so no need to delid, they also will have hardware changes to address spectre/meltdown.

Will see inevitably wait for November and see how sales go and what kind of performance the intel chips and Nvidias new gpus bring. I'm pretty content with the 7700k/1080 combo I have right now, but still have the upgrade bug that's stirring up an itch.

Intel being Intel, You never know it might be $699.


Lets just see the MSRP when its official, Intel might not be as competitive as you might expect.

i7 9700K is $659 which is 8 threads vs i7-8700k that's $360. 8 threads/cores vs 6core/12 threads.

Intel must have bumped their damn head.

I honestly doubt it would retail over $500 for non-HEDT platform processor.

Wow, 6 cores cheap. Finally give me a reason to upgrade.

I sure hope this isn't real. Waiting on a 9900k for a build and after seeing a 2080Ti is going to cost 1200+ usd, I can't do 850 usd for an i9. Starting to think I should just settle for 2700x/i7-8700k and a 1080Ti. I'm a frame rate seeker over graphics anyway.

If this is true... typical Intel. Most likely it will outperform the 2700x but probably not by a huge margin, just like the 1950x vs the i9 7980XE which was only like 5-10% faster which wasn't even that impressive and Intel had the nerve to charge double the price for it.

There are different markets. The 8700k is 20% faster in gaming at stock in a handful of games at 1080p which a ton of people still play at.

If this can actually run all 8 cores at 4.7Ghz at stock this will just increase the gaming lead.
