European Coffee Lake CPU pricing leaks

EU pricing for Intel’s upcoming Coffee Lake series CPUs has leaked on Guru3D, revealing prices that are higher than their existing Kaby Lake-S counterparts but with increased core counts. 

At this time these prices have not been confirmed by Intel, so the usual grain of salt is required, though they do seem very close to what many consumers are expecting given the pricing of AMD’s Ryzen lineup and the core counts/clock speeds that Intel offer. 

 

Processor Cores/Threads Base Clock Boost Clock Turbo (1 core) L3 Cache TDP Price
Core i7 8700K 6/12 3.7 GHz 4.3 GHz 4.7 GHz 12 MB 95 W € 389
Core i7 8700 6/12 3.2 GHz 4.3 GHz 4.6 GHz 12 MB 65 W € 327
Core i5 8600K 6/6 3.6 GHz 4.1 GHz 4.3 GHz 9 MB 95 W € 273
Core i5 8400 6/6 2.8 GHz 3.8 GHz 4.0 GHz 9 MB 65 W € 192
Core i3 8350K 4/4 4.0 GHz NA NA 8 MB 91 W € 189
Core i3 8300 4/4 4.0 GHz NA NA 8 MB 65 W
Core i3 8100 4/4 3.6 GHz NA NA 6 MB 65 W € 123
 
 
Below is the current EU pricing of Intel’s Kaby-Lake series equivalents (via Caseking.de), which are cheaper but offer lower core counts.

If these prices are legitimate it places Intel’s Coffee lake CPUs in a very interesting position, with AMD offering more cores at most price-points while Intel offers higher single core and multicore boost clock speeds and single-threaded performance. 

It looks like Coffee Lake will be the most competitive architecture that Intel has released for several CPU generations, provided that the Z370 platform cost is similar to Z270 and this early pricing info is correct.
