Intel has been hard at work to come out with processors good enough to compete with the price and performance of AMD’s Ryzen series. Lately, there has been a lot of rumors going around about the next generation Intel Core processors, including the recent leak of the i9-9900k you can read about here.
A new leak has emerged from the data published by a Singaporean distributor about the pricing of the ninth generation Intel Core processors.
The data lists the following 4 processors and their prices in what seems to be Singaporean dollars (And their USD conversions)-
- Intel Core i9-9900K (8C/16T) -$666 SD/$483 US
- Intel Core i7-9700K (8C/8T) – $518 SD/$376 US
- Intel Core i5-9600K (6C/6T) – $370 SD/$268 US
- Intel Core i3-9350K (4C/4T) – $252 SD/$183 US
Considering that a distributor is a primary intermediary of the sale of such products, these prices should correspond pretty closely to the actual ones of the product.
This leak also confirms the core and thread counts of these processors and seems like Intel might be having a pretty hard time competing with the Ryzen product line yet another generation. The Ryzen 2700X which is only a little slower than the i9-9900K, was priced at $399 US at launch and the R7 2800X is still to be revealed by AMD although the rumors suggest it should be faster than the i9 (you can read more about it here).
Over that, they still did not bring in hyperthreading to the i7 and i5 lines of processors while the red competitors, R7 series and R5 series all have that feature enabled at the same(if not lower) price point giving them way better performance at multi-threaded workloads. Although Intel processors might pull ahead in gaming due to their strong Single-Core performance.
