TechPowerUp noticed Newegg is now charging less for various Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors, from the 8th Gen and 9th Gen Core series. Several processors are now once again available at MSRP levels, despite the ongoing shortage of Intel's 14nm CPUs. It's unknown whether this is a temporary Black Friday sale, or a sign that things are improving.

Here's a quick overview of the current pricing:
Newegg currently lists the Core i5-9600K at USD $249.99, and the Core i7-8700K at $369.99, while the i7-8700 goes for $319.99, matched with AMD's Ryzen 7 2700X. The Core i5-8600K is listed at $239.99, which is just $20 above the consumer-favorite i5-8400. Newegg's pricing is still riddled with mark-up anomalies for SKUs in high demand. The Core i7-9700K is listed at $487.99, which is about $10 cheaper than Intel's MSRP for the Core i9-9900K, which is selling for an obnoxious $850.
