Intel is set to cut their CPU prices to combat Ryzen 3rd Gen

Intel has no immediate response to AMD's Ryzen 3rd Generation processor lineup, with the company having no release plans to desktop-grade Ice Lake processors and officially announced products to succeed their 9th Generation Coffee Lake series processor. All they have is the i9-9900KS, which has no official pricing or release date at this time. 

So what can Intel do now? According to DigiTimes, this is Intel's plan, to cut the pricing of their current-generation 9th Generation product lineup by 10-15% and to focus on more promotions and product bundles. Intel's marketing focus will be on gaming performance, an area where Intel believes their processors will retain an advantage over Ryzen. 

AMD's Ryzen 3rd Generation processors are designed to target Intel processors by offering similar gaming performance and more cores/threads, marketing their processors to gamers who wish to have more performance on tap for creative applications and other heavy workloads. The chart below, which was provided by AMD, compares the pricing and specifications of AMD's Ryzen 3rd Generation processors and Intel's 9th generation core processors.

Intel is seriously panicking with the upcoming release of Ryzen 3rd gen, which they should be. I’m for one ain’t the slighest interested in Intel CPUs anymore, I’ve personally outgrown them and I’m more than willing to support AMD instead. Highest possible fps isn’t important for me anymore either, so I don’t need to have the most ”bleeding edge” tech.Quote

As long as Zen 2 has no major flaws, I don't see any reason for me to even consider an Intel CPU for many years. The 3700X and a decent X570 motherboard with my current 3200Mhz kit is all that I'll want or need.Quote

So Intel does not consider prices depending on costs, but on real and brutal profit. That's why, when they have competition, they drop prices.

And that's why every Intel CPU should be left of the shelfs.Quote

What do you mean by ”no major flaws”? Even if they do, it can’t be more than Intel has ...

Decent X570 motherboard? Got anyone in mind as of right now or no?...

Do you mean that’s why they should all sell out (ie be left off the shelfs) or not be (ie be left on the shelfs)?Quote
