No, Intel has not cut its CPU prices

There's some buzz about Intel responding to the imminent arrival of Ryzen by significantly lowering its prices but this seems to be a promotion from a single retailer and not a broad price cut coming from Intel.

WCCF Tech discovered that US retailer Microcenter is offering big discounts on various Intel desktop processors. There are some good deals to be found but this promotion is exclusively for in-store pickup and is limited to one unit per household.

Here's an overview of the promotions with the current price level at Microcenter and the price cut versus the usual list price:
  • Intel Core i7-6950X ($1599 US) – $300 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i7-6900K ($999 US) – $200 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i7-6850K ($549 US) – $150 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i7-6800K ($359 US) – $140 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i7-5820K ($319 US) – $100 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i7-7700K ($299 US) – $80 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i7-6700K ($259 US) – $140 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i7-4790K ($279 US) – $90 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i7-7700 ($289 US) – $50 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i7-6700 (259 US) – $90 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i5-7600K ($199 US) – $70 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i5-6600K ($179 US) – $$90 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i5-4690K ($189 US) – $70 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i5-7500 ($189 US) – $30 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i5-6500 ($179 US) – $50 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i5-4590 ($159 US) – $60 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i3-7350K ($159 US) – $20 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i3-7100 ($114 US) – $15 Price Cut
  • Intel Core i3-6100 ($109 US) – $20 Price Cut
  • Intel G4400 ($49.99 US) – $20 Price Cut
  • Intel G3258 ($49.99 US) – $27 Price Cut
  • I do think we're going to see some healthy competition that will result in consumers getting more performance per buck but at the moment there's no evidence of an upcoming price war.
