Intel Core F and KF IGP-less series gets 5 to 20 percent price cuts

Posted on Tuesday, October 08 2019 @ 13:51:17 CEST by

Late last year, Intel introduced the F-series and the unlocked KF-series, new versions of its Core processors without integrated graphics. The main goal of this new line was to alleviate the 14nm supply issues. By also selling chips with defective graphics, the chip giant was able to boost its chip output.

However, the odd thing was that these parts were (at least officially) sold for exactly the same price as the full-featured counterparts. That's changing now as Intel announced 5 to 20 percent price cuts for the F-series and KF-series processors.

Although the F-series chips officially sported the same recommended prices as Intel's fully-functional models, they've been a little cheaper in practice. Those savings have normally fallen in the $20 range. It's hard to tell if Intel's reduction in official pricing will result in further savings at retail, but it's logical to expect retail pricing to drop further.
