TechPowerUp discovered that Singapore-based PC component distributor BizGram is listing retail prices for the Intel Core i5-9600K, Core i7-9700K, and Core i9-9900K processors. Take it with a grain of salt, and there's also some currency conversion involved here, but it looks like the retail pricing of the 9th Gen Core CPUs could be pretty attractive:
Singapore-based PC component distributor BizGram, in its latest catalog, disclosed the all-inclusive retail prices of the three new processors. As Redditor Dylan522p suggests, if you do the SGD-USD conversion and subtract all taxes, you get ominous-looking SEP prices for the three. Intel could price the Core i5-9600K at USD $249.99. The Core i7-9700K could be priced at $349.99. The flagship Core i9-9900K could go for $449.99. These seem like highly plausible pre-tax launch prices for the three chips, and fit into the competitive landscape.
Based on what we know today, the Core i5-9600K looks pretty competitive to the Ryzen 5 2600X, while the Core i7-9700K will likely trade blows with the Ryzen 7 2700X.
