To ensure we haven't missed anything in the hustle and bustle, perhaps sheer insanity, which is Computex here is a look at what The Tech Report garnered from Intel about their new chip and chipset. They have also taken the path of least resistance and are reporting from a remote location as opposed to the front lines, which can make compiling information more effective. The top question on peoples minds are the pricing of the new chips and we can now report them, starting with the most expensive part. The Core i9-7900X will run $1000, significantly less than the i7-6950X, the i7-7820X will run $600 and the i7-7800X a cool $390. It seems that AMD have succeeded at attracting Intel's attention and Intel has reduced their pricing for this generation of chips. Let's hope AMD can continue to rip it up!
