Intel dropping desktop CPU prices by up to 15%

According to DigiTimes, Intel's current range of CPUs  - which will include 8th and 9th Gen CPUs -  will see 10-15% lopped off their retail prices, with sources linked to motherboard manufacturers. This could see up to $75 knocked off the price of a $500 Core i9-9900K, a $60 reduction in the $400 Core i7-9700K, while the Core i5-9600K might already have seen a price cut looking at the Amazon historical data.

The price cuts will likely extend to non K-edition CPUs such as the Core i5-9400 as well as 8th Gen CPU such as the Core i7-8700K. Meanwhile, Tomshardware has cited details from Intel's recent Investor day where it's claimed the company lowered its gross margin predictions below its usual goals with competitive pressure being stated as the cause.
