More about coffee lake 8th gen intel effects ryzen 7th gen intel processors
  1. Intel in previous years has not lowered previous gen prices by very much if at all when the new one comes out. however this year could be slightly different.

    As for Ryzen, the Intel 8th gen pricing and performance scheme seems to be a result of Ryzen finally giving AMD some competitive footing.

    Basically, the new chips should follow the typical pricing scheme as in years before, but Intel will step up what exactly you get for that price. Other than that, the rest of the market should remain unaffected. so dont expect any massive price drops or great deals next month. Same price, more for your money.

  5. It is nearly impossible to predict if prices are going to drop at a specific time, or even in response to other products coming out.

  6. Prices on 7th gen Intel processors may fall roughly 5% in response to 8th generation release. It may not fall at all. Either way, it's doubtful that the price drop will be anything significant enough to reflect buying it over 8th gen CPUs, or even Ryzen for that matter. It's not really what Intel does. Ryzen prices will likely not drop in response to 8th gen Intel CPUs either.

  7. At 1st glance I wouldn't think that things will change .... in gaming the 1600 versus 7600k went to the 7600k by 15%

    For video editing Intel has the lead with the 7900x outperforming the 1950X at the $1,000 price point and the 7800x outperforms the 1700x at the <$400 price point. No doubt Ryzen will have a niche with specific applications but these are the 2 biggest areas and I think these categories drive the larger % of the market.

    On a secondary level tho, the new gen Intel CPUs will push down the cost of Intel's existing chips a bit which in turn should push down Ryzen's prices. I wouldn't expect anything earth shattering tho.
