That is the phenomenon for our rejoice.:razz:;):D

Though not an AMD fanboy any more, I would love to see the bash on Intel made by AMD relating to prices/cost. In fact fanboyism is laughable and ridiculous in the world of electronics and IT hardware.

You people do realise don't aren't actually dropped
They were inflated to begin with
Because 6900K is 1000$ not 1200$
Same with 6950X which is 1700$ not 1900$

Those articles are really just clickbaits and really shows that some authors just don't do the research beforehand

I think the price reduction is on MSP as newegg.com lists CPUs higher than your indicated prices but still lower then the one indicated by the article.

Intel seems desperate, atleast if this article holds any weight: Intel is Trying to Manipulate AMD Ryzen Launch

An offtopic question, I had to built a new gaming pc but due to some problems at home I had to delay the same. Now I am planning for it in the next month or so. Will the prices drop in India too? And irrespective of the price drops, any idea whether applicability of gst will increase the hardware's prices or reduce it?

yes, I expect some price drops on the Intel side, but suddenly to me i7-7700K doesn't look worth it.

Intel prices will drop in India too. But I think its better to wait for Ryzen 5 and 3 whose performances will decide on Intel's pricing.

As for the GST, the expected applicable tax on computers/components will be 18% (up from 5% now). Hence a good price jump is expected. But this tax rate is still tentative..wait for the the actual tax slabs to be released..

Ah, but that will be applicable from 1st July as of today. So, I am planning to build a pc before July. Is there any update or something when will Intel drop its prices?

Also should I go for Intel when the prices are dropped or for AMD?

Thanks

Awaiting for your reply Sir's.

Check this : GST Rates: Final GST rates out, slabs fixed at 5%, 12%, 18% & 28% - Times of Indi

Earlier it was proposed to have single tax of 18% but after many discussions 4 slabs were introduced. 5% slab is for day-to-day commodities only. Tax slab for other items have still not been declared clearly but the hint was given that most items (including computers) will fall under 18% tax slab...Still waiting for the clarity on the final result..

The service tax that we pay on internet/phone bills, fast food etc. will be coming under atleast 18% slab that has been declared.
I was reading an article written by some very experienced person in this field, don't remember the name, according to him out of the 110 crore population around 10-15 crores are children/minors. Let's round off the remaining to 100 crore. Out of these 100 65% people are agriculturists or atleast they show that they are farmers hence no or very very little taxes for them. Out of the remaining 35 crores 20 crores are senior citizens/women/BPL people with low or no taxes. Then out of the remaining 15 crores there are Neta's or Dabaang's who don't pay taxes, let's say around 7-8 crores. So, the remaining 7-8 crore people are paying tax for the whole nation of 110 crore.
The figures are more or less the same as mentioned in the article, I will try to find it and post a photo here.

I read, only 2% of the people file ITR. Out of that 50% don't pay income tax i.e., only 1% of the population pays income tax.
By the way why are you bringing income tax with GST? Are they going to abolish IT after introducing GST or what?

The whole point of the article which I referred to was that GST is being enforced to generate more revenues in the long run. More revenue is needed for the nation and hence it was mentioned that if most people pay taxes then the slabs might be reduced.

If I had to buy a system now I would wait till June. By that time Ryzen 5 and 3 would be out and I would know their performance as compared to Intel. Also by that time motherboard manufacturer would have introduced better performing products/drivers/BIOSes for Ryzen cpus. Intel would have also adjusted its prices by then giving me clearer picture for the best value system. GST tax slab will also be clearer by then. What you feel is upto you.

All depends on the price scenario.

R5 1600X or R5 1500 would be very potent against the competing i5.

Doesn't matter much, but AMD is also more power efficient than Intel this time round. I'd personally go with the company which has caused the drop, and that is undoubtedly AMD.
