Thanks to Belgium online retailer 2Compute we now have a complete price list for the 10th gen desktop CPU lineup from Intel. As with the previous price leaks, the F-series variants that come without an iGPU seem to offer better value, yet prices are still considerably higher than AMD's competition.

A few weeks ago, Czech and Slovakian retailers released partial price lists up to the i5-10600 Comet Lake-S desktop CPU model, revealing interesting price points for the KF versions that do not include an iGPU. Meanwhile, the 2Compute retailer from Belgium went ahead and posted prices for the remaining i7 and i9 models, but it specifies that these are tray CPU prices, which are a bit lower than the boxed versions. According to Tom’s Hardware, the price difference only amounts to a few dollars, so the list should still provide a good idea on what to expect for the final boxed version prices.

High-end Comet Lake-S model price list
ModelPrice
Core i9-10900K$562
Core i9-10900KF$532
Core i9-10900$506
Core i9-10900T$506
Core i9-10900F$476
Core i7-10700K$436
Core i7-10700KF$405
Core i7-10700$376
Core i7-10700T$376
Core i7-10700F$346
Core i5-10600K$296
Core i5-10600KF$266

Note that the prices are converted to US$ and do not include the European VAT tax. As such, the boxed version of the 10-core i9-10900K should be available for around $562 in the U.S. If we want to compare these models to AMD’s existing Ryzen 3000 processors, it would be better to consider the F variant pricing, since these do not include an iGPU. Even with the drop to $532, the price is considerably higher compared to AMD’s Ryzen 9 3900X that is currently going for $420, and from what we have seen from some early benchmarks, Intel does not really have the edge as far as performance is concerned.

The same problem could be extrapolated for the I7-10700KF and i5-10600KF models that are considerably more expansive compared to the AMD’s Ryzen 7 3800X and Ryzen 5 3600X, respectively. The T models that come with reduced TDPs are decent solutions for mini PCs, but we are not sure if slapping the same price tag as the one featured on the non-K models is a good move for Intel.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
