Intel Values Their Own iGPUs At Exactly Zero

"You would expect processors that come with disabled features to cost less than more-capable models, but according to Intel's latest price list, that standard reasoning doesn't apply to its new iGPU-disabled F-series processors." (via Tomshardware)

Jokes aside, it's telling that Intel is confident these processors can be sold at the same price as those with working GPUs. I wonder if this is a market test before actually producing a new set of masks without the GPU / display engine altogether given their 14 nm capacity shortage. Even on the eight core die, the GPU makes up more than 1/3 of the area.
