Intel F-series Core CPUs without IGP are sold for the same price

If you were hoping for cheaper prices on the new graphics-free Core processors from Intel, you're out of luck. A new report from AnandTech reveals the new F-series parts from Intel have exactly the same tray pricing as the versions with integrated graphics.
Normally when a part of a processor is fused off, usually cores, we expect to see a decrease in the listed price. In this instance, Intel is putting the same tray price on its GPU-free processors to make them also savings-free. Given how tray price is often not connected to the retail price, it will depend on how many processors actually make it to market or to retail (if any end up in retail packaging) to see if they will actually be sold at a lower price than the parts with integrated graphics.
My theory here is that the F-series parts are used to boost processor supply. Intel has been struggling for months to provide the market with enough 14nm processors, as the chip giant's production capacity is fully utilized. By bringing chips with defective graphics cores to the market, Intel is able to slightly boost its output.
