Does Intel accept defeat? CPU prices drop 15% to counter Ryzen 3000 CPUs

Intel CPU price reductions, Intel Comet Lake

It is no secret that AMD Ryzen CPUs have been surpassing the CPU market and Intel is having difficulty competing. On top of that, AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs are outpacing Intel CPUs in benchmarks that will make things even more difficult for Intel. However, Intel could have discovered a way to stay in competition by lowering the prices of its CPUs by 10-15{7be40b84a6a43fc4fae13304fce9a2695859798abfc41afd127b9f8b21c5f9c5}.

According to a report, Intel is prepared to reduce its CPU prices by 10-15{7be40b84a6a43fc4fae13304fce9a2695859798abfc41afd127b9f8b21c5f9c5} to compete with the AMD Ryzen 3000 CPUs. In addition, Intel has already notified its motherboard and CPU partners about the price cut.

The market must still reflect this change and until this happens or Intel officially announces it, take it with a grain of salt. However, it will not be surprising if Intel really reduces its CPU prices by 15{7be40b84a6a43fc4fae13304fce9a2695859798abfc41afd127b9f8b21c5f9c5} since the price is currently the only thing that will save Intel.

Recently, the benchmarks for AMD Ryzen 9 3950X appeared online. Interestingly, Ryzen 9 3950X destroyed Intel Core i9-9980XE in multi-threaded and multi-threaded performance.

The Ryzen 9 3950X scored 5868 points in single-threaded processes and 61072 points in multi-threaded processes. On the other hand, Core i9-9980XE obtained 5300 points in single-threaded processes and 42000 points in multi-threaded processes. These benchmarks show how good Ryzen CPUs are compared to Intel.

In addition to Ryzen 9 3950X, AMD Ryzen 9 3900X also beats Intel Core i9-9900K and i9-9920X. This despite Intel Core i9-9900K with a 5.0 GHz boost to all its 8 cores. Perhaps the largest number of cores / threads helped Ryzen 9 3900X beat the Intel flagship game CPU.

AMD is also driving the latest generation consoles, also known as PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett, with its CPU based on the Zen 2 architecture and the Navi GPU. Not only that, Navi GPU for next-generation consoles is confirmed to support Ray Tracing in real time. That is, Ray Tracing in real time will become a norm in video games with the launch of PS5 and the next Xbox.
