I caused quite the flurry when I first reported that Intel was reacting to the impending launch of AMD's new Ryzen CPUs over two years ago now, and fast forwarding to now has seen the entire CPU market change. AMD is about to launch the world's first consumer 7nm CPU, with a range of actually very kick ass Ryzen 3000 processors based on the new Zen 2 architecture.

Well, now it seems Intel is going to reportedly drop the price of its desktop CPUs by 15% in a response to AMD's new Ryzen 3000 series CPUs that are launching on 7/7. DigitTimes is reporting that the new 9th-gen Intel Core CPUs would see a 10-15% price drop which would see somewhere between $25 and $75 being shaved off of CPUs like the Core i9-9900K, Core i7-9700K, and Core i5-9600K.
