Intel’s 10th Gen CPU lineup is just a few months away from launch, for all we know. With Intel looking to get an advantage over AMD, pretty competitive pricing can be expected. While earlier, a few retailers had leaked the price of i5-10600 CPU, today, a Belgian retailer has leaked the price of the entire lineup.
The entry-level i5 KF model, without the iGPU starts at $266. It goes all the way up to the i9-10900K, which costs a whopping 562$. If we compare it to the stuff available on the red side, we might not see much value here. Leaks haven’t suggested too great of an improvement over AMD’s existing CPUs. Not to forget, Zen 3 is also round the corner.
If this actually turns out to be the pricing Intel goes ahead with, it will raise some serious questions. If we look at the i9-10900KF, which should go head to head with AMD’s Ryzen 9 3900x, there is a massive 100$ difference in price. It’s very less likely the $100 buff in price will be justified. Taking into consideration the fact that it’s still on 14nm, there is only much Intel can do on that node. Similarly, the prices for i5s and i7s don’t look too catchy either, and whether it is justified remains to be seen.
Nonetheless, with rumors suggesting that Intel will reveal the CPUs in April 2020, it won’t be long before we actually get real information.
