Intel announced their high core-count Ryzen competitors today.
The 1800X competitor, the i7-7820X, is $599 with 8 cores/16 threads of Skylake-X cores. It will have a nice IPC advantage over Ryzen, and it has much higher clocks. It boosts to 4.5Ghz natively, and can likely overclock a bit higher than that. So performance-wise, it should smoke the 1800X. But Intel isn’t competing on price-- the Ryzen 1800X MSRP is $499 (and sells right now for $460.)
The 1700X competitor, the i7-7800X, is $380 with 6 cores/12 threads also of Skylake-X cores. It natively boosts to 4.0Ghz (which again is the absolute max overclock for Ryzen) and can almost definitely be overclocked to 4.5Ghz. It technically comes in $20 cheaper than the 1700X, which has a MSRP of $400, but you can actually buy a 1700X for like $350 so Intel isn’t directly competing on price here either.
Intel knows they have superior products here, so they are pricing them a bit over AMD. This is merciful of them. They could afford to match AMD’s prices and completely obliterate their competition.
