Intel’s recently established lineup of Coffee Lake desktop processors are now available here in Malaysia. The availability of these chips were seen on ETECH PC’s store on Lelong.my and Compuzone’s Facebook page. It’s worth noting, however, in the time of writing, just four Coffee Lake background SKUs are available in Malaysia — Intel launched six Coffee Lake CPUs.
Once it comes to pricing, the most affordable Intel Coffee Lake CPU that is currently available in Malaysia is the Core i3-8100, which is priced at RM509. Next up is the Core i3-8350K chip that has an unlocked multiplier. This CPU includes a small cost of RM765. Apart from that, the Intel Core i5-8400 has also been made available in Malaysia for a cost of RM809.
Lately, the strongest Coffee Lake CPU, Intel Core i7-8700K, can be available for purchase locally. This Intel processor has recently been endowed with numerous favorable testimonials, especially concerning gaming. The Core i7-8700K is currently priced at RM1,599. Do keep in mind that the costs for the above Coffee Lake background CPUs are based on ETECH PC’s listing. Other major retailers in Malaysia haven’t recorded their respective pricing for these CPUs.
As mentioned in our previous post, Intel Coffee Lake CPUs may face scarce availability in 2017. It follows that stock may be limited in the coming months. If you’re interested in purchasing a Coffee Lake CPU, it’s best to act fast before they run out.
