    There we have it, it took 3 years but Intel finally caved and dropped their prices. And i use the term "caved" liberally, they have two competitors, AMD and ARM, who both have parts that exceed their flagship in performance at a greatly reduced cost. Every time a new announcement highlights this, it continues to raise uncomfortable questions for Intel.

    Now they can play out that they didn't cave, this is a refresh and a new SKU list on an optimised uarch and process. But it's still Skylake with some bolt ons at the lower SKU ranges.

    It's a heavy price cut to detract from the AMD/ARM butchslapping with perf/dollar they're enjoying right now.

    1.42-times better performance-per-dollar compared to their predecessors.... so in non marketing terms... we had to lower our prices because AMD caught us sleeping and now we can't milk years old tech at high prices.
