It's too bad that it is going to end on a bad note. The badminton competition of Chinese National Games will run from Sept 1 to Sept 11. So the better players who go deep into the draw at the National Games will have to withdraw from China Masters.
On the other hand, it may be a good opportunity for the foreign players to rack up some ranking points in the weaken field.

most of the Malaysia (BAM) players not participate in this tournament, all went to IBL at India...

Men's Singles: Time for either the Japanese, Indonesian, and Danes to get super series title with the warm welcome from the loser of Chinese National Games
Women's Singles: Missing Schenk, but still quite competitive, not sure at the last minute though... and Bella is the sole Indonesians in the field
Men's Doubles: Can Markis Kido or Hendra Setiawan win another title in China? Markis Kido with a new pair, youngser, Markus Fernaldi... While Hendra Setiawan play as the current world champ, WR No.2... There will be tough challenge from the KOR, JPN, CHN, MAS pairs.
Women's Doubles: If Yu/Wang absent from the field because of National Games, can the CHN squad secure WD title? Maybe yes, if Eom Hye Won is on the list
Mixed Doubles: CHN pair on the defense from KOR, THA, INA, JPN pairs....

Disappointed that CHN WS 16-yr-old prodigy,He Bingjiao, has been withdrawn. A pity, it would have been her maiden adult international tournament, a good exposure for a budding future star.

Another withdrawals : Mohammad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan (INA), Marc Zwiebler (GER), Sony Dwi Kuncoro (INA), Simon Santoso (INA).

I guess the reason why sometimes more non-CHN players prefer to compete in the India SS than the CHN Masters is because it's harder to win the CHN Masters with the CHN relative unknowns and second stringers potentially worldbeaters. IIRC, Tine Baun was once unceremoniously bundled out by Yao Xue in the early rounds.
For this edition it's unlikely we can look forward to a LXR - IR clash as the former will have to withdraw from this tournament if she progresses to the SF of the Chinese National Games.

Interestingly, the chief sponsor of the tournament is adidas

Yup, addidas the new kid on the block for badminton equipment.

Adidas sponsors the last and final edition of the CHN Masters, trying to get inroads into the China market. Good to have more sponsors supporting badminton in more places.
