AMD appears to be trying to poach customers from Intel following the revelation of the latter’s new 9th-gen processors and their pricing, with the asking price of the Ryzen 7 2700X being chopped to just $294.99 at Amazon over in the US.

Now, remember that Intel’s incoming Core i9-9900K, which goes on sale October 19, and is also an eight-core processor with very similar specs on paper – albeit with a somewhat faster boost speed in stock configuration – has a recommended price of $488 (around £370).

As we noted in our hands on with Intel’s Core i9, the Ryzen 7 2700X looked comparatively great value at $329, and now it has been further dropped by just over 10%.

In short, this makes Intel’s chip seem very costly – it’s around two-thirds more expensive to be precise – particularly when you remember that AMD’s effort also comes bundled with a premium Wraith cooler.
