Intel ready to launch a price war?

Intel ready to launch a price war?

Rocket lake-S rates could be particularly aggressive.

While AMD has just unveiled its Zen 3 series of processors, with prices positioned above the Ryzen range currently on the market, Intel could be tempted to come and disrupt AMD’s prices as early as 2021 with Rocket Lake-S.

On the field of performance, the leaks are very contradictory on the potential of Rocket Lake-S. However, it could be that the Ryzen 5000 won’t keep its crown as king of gaming for very long. We will however wait a while to have a real trend, the arrival of the next i5/i7 and i9 Rocket Lake-S not being scheduled before Q2 2021.

On the price field however, some leaks seem to attest to Intel’s desire to disrupt its competitor’s model by making its new generation very aggressive. It must be said that the life expectancy of the Rocket Lake-S could be very short with the arrival of a new generation ( bye bye 14nm ) at the very end of 2021.

Rocket Lake-S

Various sources, including internal Intel sources, evoke a willingness of the blues to want to hinder AMD by a pricing policy rather unusual for the brand.

So we could have a Core i5 with 6 cores and 12 threads positioned at less than 300 Euros ( VS the 5600X which will be at the same price )and a Core i7 with a price lower than 379€ which could tickle the 5800X .

Obviously, all tweezers are recommended. But in a way, it is hard to see what other Intel strategy could be adopted with a generation that is there to ensure a simple transition while the platforms, the process and possibly the RAM are likely to change a few months later…
