Hi all of you. You know that there is a trade war going on in between USA and China. In case if you are not aware of the same then please search the same on web and get some details. In brief in trade war US is imposing increased tariff on good imported from China and China is doing vice versa. Theoretically speaking these kind of situation should not impact the pricing of various products here in India. But as you all know this is all happening from a bigger point of view also known as Macroscopic view. Not only this but the appreciation of Dollar with respect to Rupee is also a major concern. 1 Dollar is now trailing at 71 Rupees here in India which is also a major concern as it will result in the increase of import prices.
Because of all these factors there is substantial increase in the pricing of various Intel CPU’s. Though strange thing is that it affects the pricing of Intel products only. May be it is just a start and other products will also get price hikes. So it is advised to buy them now in case if you are planning to build a new PC or buy a new PC component. The pricing of Coffee Lake i7 8700 K is now Rs. 32, 650 at MD Computers which is approximately 19 % higher than the previous pricing of Rs. 27, 500. Similar is the case with other Intel CPU’s also. Prices are increased by up to 25%.
So build your PC a.s.a.p. while you can using AMD parts.
