Some hardware stores in the country have officially begun preparations for the Cascade-X generation - with massive discounts on the previous generation
The official announcement of Cascade Lake-X generation processors For the home market, equipped with tens of percent lower prices together with past models with the same number of double-digit cores, immediately created questions about the fate of the remaining processors of the processorsSkylake-X, from both the 7000 series and the 9000 series.
It was natural to expect a price cut in these models as well, which would help them disappear from the shelves ahead of new and updated arrivals, and there were plenty of rumors about the upcoming cut. We are now pleased to announce that the long-awaited price cut is real and even clearly evident here in the Israeli market, although there has been no announcement or public reference from Intel itself.
In several stores and chains in the country, such as KSP and Plonter, a large price collapse can now be seen for some of the most advanced models of Intel The 9000 Series for the HEDT World: The Modelcore i9-9980XE leading with 18 cores for slightly more than NIS 4,000 compared to more than NIS 9,000 so far, model core i9-9960X with 16 cores and model core i9-9940X with 14 cores for less than NIS 4,000 and 12 and 10 cores at costs under NIS 3,000.
These are, of course, prices that are still very high for quite a few users, but they are certainly approaching a point where they could be a logical alternative - even against an octagonal modelcore i9-9900K sold for about NIS 2,200 or higher in the country (assuming moving to more than 8 physical cores will benefit your specific uses).
How our local hardware landscape will crash in a few months, when they come too Cascade Lake-X models Intel and also Threadripper models 3000 Of AMD? This is a very exciting question for us, which explains how much competition has improved since the birth of the architecture.Zen attitude.
