Intel recently released the first three K-series processors of the ninth generation of Core, 8 cores and 16 threads, acceleration of 5GHz, brazing heat, etc. are quite attractive, performance is not a problem ahead of the opponent.
At this moment, for the AMD Ruilong family, we must be careful to deal with it. The land that has just been laid can not be lost, but in fact, the solution is very simple, that is AMD’s consistent weapon – cost.
Nine generations of Core Duo first three models 8 core 16 thread i9-9900K, 8 core 8 thread i7-9700K, 6 core 6 thread i5-9600K, the official wholesale price of 488, 374, 262 dollars, compared to eight generations of Core Rui price increase In particular, the i9-9900K is 34% more expensive than the i7-8700K.
Moreover, this is only a thousand wholesale price, the actual retail price will generally be higher.
On the other hand, Intel’s 14nm process has suffered from severe shortages in recent capacity. Out of stock will continue until next year, accompanied by a large price increase. The price of almost all models of the 8th generation Core has approached or even exceeded the original starting price.
Obviously, Intel processors are not cheap now, especially the mainstream installed star i5-8400 is already 30 dollars more expensive than the first launch.
The domestic situation is similar, and some even increase prices even more.
On the other hand, AMD’s side, in addition to the new Zen+Vega architecture Athlon 200GE price has risen slightly, the Ruilong family are continuing to decline, such as the Ruilong 5 2600 has been a quarter cheaper than the starting, cost-effective spike i5-8400, sharp The Dragon 5 2600X is even cheaper than it.
The production capacity is tight, the shortage of goods is serious, the price is soaring, and the initial model is positioned too high. In this situation, the 9th generation Core is expected to have a great impact on the market structure. The pressure on the Ruilong will not be too large. When you adjust the price, you can stabilize the situation.
