Full Intel 10th gen desktop CPU price list leaked online by Belgium retailer
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.
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.
