Intel may cut prices in response to AMD’s Ryzen 1700, 1700X, and 1800X launch

Earlier this week, Intel starts cutting the prices on some of its Core i5 and i7 processors. Micro Center has adjusted its prices dramatically downward, with the Core i7-7700K to $300 which is $80 cheaper, the Core i5-7600K to $200 another $70 dollars less, i5 6600K from $ 270 to $179, HotHardware reported. Even Broadwell-E chips   get on the action, with the Core i7-6850K dropping to $550 from $700 and the i7-6800K itself now priced at $360 rom $500

Where it is not clear that these price cuts are locked in for all Intel’s product lines or it is a temporary Micro Center promotion. So far the list prices for Intel processors have not been updated. At this point Amazon has the same prices as before, which that may change anytime or later on (we think).
