    With the absolute hammering Intel CPUs are taking with all the mitigations for various vulnerabilities, it'll have to be one hell of a price cut.

    But I do struggle to see how this is news yet. When the price cut hits... or rather, when Intel announce that it will actually happen, fine - but right now? It's like saying, "Newsflash: the UK will have rain in the future."

    They already have supply issues at current prices, so I don't see how increased demand due to lower prices will help them.

    It'll increase profits, which despite being beaten in performance by Ryzen 3, performance mitigated to painful levels, delays and issues with 10nm and problems making enough chips... Intel didn't exactly lose money over the last year: $20.2bn in Q4.

    They already stated that they were bringing more capacity online.

    Its not like they need to do a great deal, a rebrand of existing parts bundled with new platform features, TB4 for example and they'd sell a boat load to OEMs anyway without a perf bump.
