CPU World came across preliminary pre-order pricing of Intel's upcoming Skylake processors. A store named PC Connection is listing six CPUs, on average the pre-order pricing appears to be 13-19 percent higher than the official pricing of the corresponding Haswell processors but we don't know how representative these prices are of course.
Currently, the store has 6 out-of-stock Skylake microprocessors from Core i5-6400 to Core i7-6700K, and their prices range from $211 to $394. Compared to previous generation, the pre-order prices of Skylake CPUs are about 13% - 19% higher than the official prices of desktop Haswell chips. It is important to remember that that the market prices are usually higher than the official ones, and that pre-order prices may go down a bit once the processors are released.
