According to an early listing on Amazon, the new Core i9-9900K will cost $499 and offer 8C/16T at up to 5GHz. The lower-end Core i5-9600K will be a 6C/6T processor at up to 4.6GHz with a price of $263. You should be able to buy the new Core i9-9900K processor on October 19, which isn't too far away from now.

This price could change and I definitely expect it to, so we could see Intel have an MSRP of $499 on the Core i9-9900K and that price could change rapidly with there not being much stock of the CPU. The Amazon listing has been pulled, while the Core i5-9600K listing on Amazon remains.
