Intel Coffee Lake CPUs are expected to launch in early October - Leaked Prices?

Over the past few days, there have been several leaks surrounding the release of Intel's Coffee Lake series of CPUs, all of which hint at a retail release on October 5th. 

These CPUs will be the first of Intel's 8th generation desktop offerings, coming on Intel's latest 14nm FinFET manufacturing process and will use Intel's upcoming Z370 chipset. 
IO-Tech has revealed that appears to be EU pricing for Intel's upcoming 8-series K CPUs, offering pricing that is higher than Intel's existing i3, i5 and i7 offerings. That being said these new CPUs will offer more raw CPU cores than their older-generation counterparts, so a price increase is expected. 
Below is IO-Tech's leaked pricing. These prices have not been officially confirmed by Intel and should not be considered as anything other than a rumour. 
- Core i3-8350K €199 (4 cores, 4 threads)
- Core i5-8600K €299 (6 cores, 6 threads)
- Core i7-8700K €419 (6 cores, 12 Threads)
Below is the current EU pricing of Intel's Kaby-Lake series equivalents (via Caseking.de), which are cheaper but offer lower core counts.

With the release of AMD's Ryzen series CPUs Intel has been placed in a tough position, one where the need to reconfigure their desktop lineup to offer greater levels of competition. Coffee Lake is Intel's response to Ryzen, offering more cores and threads on their desktop platform than ever before.

for gamers the 8700k is sure a nice CPU.

but as content creator a ryzen 1700 is imho still the better choice.
it cost less than 300 euro and you can get a nice board for 110 euro.

beside that using an M.2 disables 2 sata ports i really like my asus strix B350.
makes for a great second system beside my TR.Quote

Still not competitive (enough) in my eyes... Yeah sure, more cores and higher frequencies maybe. But the price is still too high in comparison to Ryzen, which all is also soldered.Quote

Still too expensive abut $650 Au for the 8700 not worth itQuote

Definitely inflated and I expect actual retail prices to be very on par with the current generation.Quote

At those prices I am definitely NOT regretting getting a Ryzen 5 1600 for under £200. Price/performance it crushes Coffee Lake even if the 8700k is the better chip.Quote
