    So it's $50 US cheaper than the 5950X. I'm very much looking forward to your review of these 2 going head to head.

    In before far less demanding power AMD CPUs to get 100+ bucks cuts :V


    This looks like more a Bulldozer than a Ryzen moment from Intel..

    It's hard to say anything much about the prices before seeing Guru3D reviews. It was already very sad that AMD raised the prices considerably with the 5000 series, even if it wasn't that surprising. I'd say Intel planned these prices very carefully in relation to the Ryzen 5000 prices. For healthy competition's sake, let's hope it turns out to be real, not just an image Intel tries to build. I suppose when Intel finally returns to the HEDT market, those CPUs will also have prices set to directly compete with certain Threadrippers.

    undercut the competition because you know that your future product doesn't even beat the current one from the competition?

    eyy shIntel

    Good thing you don't need a K model anymore these days, as there is little to gain from an OC.

    Better get to get 65 Watt Model and get the same gaming performance.

    Hardly. BD could never touch the competition at the time (SB) and is reason why it was dirt cheap.

    gonna try to stick with my 5800X until the next console generation (by then we could be on AM6 and DDR5 will possibly be supplanted by DDR6) and I also want to see if Intel gets its nodes and power efficiency back in order by then (probably 2025 or 2026).

    I think the listed prices are fair since the leaks proved that they are better than direct competition from AMD.
    Leave aside avx2 torture tests I expect them to consume more or less like their counterparts in gaming or usual tasks.

    Gaming wise I expect this:
    $269 i5 12600k better than 5800x
    $469 i7 12700k better than 5900x

    12900k is for a very limited number of enthusiasts and braggers, I won't even bother to put it in the big equation of sales.

    The only problem and disappointment that I personally expect is like @Undying said, scalping and shop prices.
    Another hold back would be DDR5 prices and performance, even if the cpus are great many will hold till we get good price/perf DDR5 kits.

    I was expecting those to be a little cheaper.

    Either Intel is very confident about the performance of those parts or they are simply expecting people to buy everything they release because of the lack of wafers to make rival products...

    Bit of both. They know they have the superior product but want to come in just low enough to still undercut AMD and take back market share while keeping their margins high. There's just no reason for them to further lower the MSRP if they know the product will sell regardless.

    I just hope this will push the AMD prices DOWN! I am good with AMD Ryzen 5x00 at these prices!

    Could be a win-win for us if availability is no issue.
    AMD will be forced to price 5800x at 250$ and 5600x at or under $200.

    Why are you calling these prices "MSRP"? This is ONE retailers pricing and if you are familiar with Microcenter they often price $30-50 below MSRP. In other words, the real prices may actually be $30-50 higher - personally I would guess $30 because that brings the prices to a neater $699 and $499.
