Okay I will put my hand up and admit I was wrong about Intel pricing Coffee Lake at effectively Kaby Lake price points, as I thought they would make the i7 8700K be at least $400.
Even though I am not in the market for a new PC/CPU, I still look forward to the benchmarking of these beasts.
Coffee is right, these are 1k units prices, not retail, which will be higher.The only thing that keeps it under $400 are the leaks from retailer websites and they still have time to set the prices.
Intel released pricing for 1k units, if Kaby 1k-to-retail margins would be applied to Coffee 1k prices the retail would easily reach $400.
