    Phoronix: Intel Lowers Costs On New Xeon W-2200 Series & Cuts Core 9000 F-Series CPU Pricing

    In addition to The Cascadelake X-Series CPUs laqunching at a much lower price, Intel announced the Xeon W-2200 series today also at lower pricing while cutting prices on their existing Core 9000 F-series desktop CPUs too...

    Intel is the only company that delivers a full portfolio of products precision-tuned to handle the sustained compute-intensive workloads used by professional creators and enthusiasts every day.
    Really, Intel?



    I appreciate the price drops, but I wasn't dropped on my head.

      Thanks AMD. However, even now I won't buy Intel 'NSA' CPUs.

        I wonder what Intel's shareholders will think of Intel cutting their profit margins like this? We do after all live in a world where publicly listed companies have a tendency to go so far to please their shareholders that they don't just proverbially shoot themselves in the foot with a handgun, they proverbially shoot themselves in the foot with a shotgun, loaded with buckshot!

        Then again when you look at the gains AMD has been making in particularly desktops (where they hit 15% for Q2 this year) and how they're projected to hit 10% in servers (already went from 1.4% to 3.4% between Q2 last year and Q2 this year) Intel either needs to go trough with some big price cuts or put out much better products. Seeing how the latter isn't going to happen until they get their 10nm process into volume production, which doesn't seem to be happening until well into next year.

        Oh and for those who (understandably) don't know what buckshot is, it's a type of shotgun shell containing a single large metal slug and extra gunpowder so the gun doesn't just kick like a mule, it also makes a fairly big hole in whatever you hit. As for the effects of this, just look at how General Electric has been selling off perfectly profitable parts of the business and according to Harry Markopolos, the guy who figured out Bernie Maydoff's scam and tried warning the SEC for years before it all came down, accounting fraud to, at least on paper, boost profitability.

          Intel monopoly is finally over and processor prices are going down because of that. It took AMD more than 15 years to recover from Intels illegal practices that nearly destroyed AMD. Remember this court ruling: https://www.cnet.com/news/eu-hits-in...ntitrust-fine/

            Well, to be fair, the Bulldozer family of CPUs didn't exactly set the world on fire (despite their copious power consumption).

            That said, for intel to lose its pricing power like this is almost unprecedented.

              Bulldozer though was part of that recovery. As is AMD being willing to go to TSMC fr a manufacturing partner. One can not recover instantly from the type of harm Intel caused along with the self inflicted wounds. It takes time.

                By the way guys it isn’t Just AMD giving Intel a challenge here. The various In roads from ARM are significant. Plus the extraordinary good will Intel got in the past with respect to bugs is gone. The recent round of bugs and security issues have shaken the mindset many have had that one can’t go wrong buying Intel. Intel is no longer the golden boy.

                    It's taken AMD long enough to get to the point of forcing Intel into cutting prices... but I think this is a story about Hubris (with a capital H). Intel has had a strangle hold on the server and OEM industry for so long that they didn't think it mattered if they fucked up so long as they kept incrementally improving performance. Then Google dropped their bombshell and cloud providers are largely driving the show now. Security has become more of a focus as the likes of Microsoft, Amazon, and Google have to deal with the security implications of shared resource models. If they shift to backing AMD or ARM chips because cost to performance ratio is improving or matching versus Intel, Intel will be in a serious hurt from their slack attitude regarding hardware security.

                    Uh, as a former hunter myself, that's not what "buckshot" is. That's just a (normally rifled) slug shot. Buckshot are cartridges with several large round balls meant to bring down a "buck" - male deer. It comes in different sized balls from single naught (0) to double naught (00) - never seen any larger.
