The cheaper Ryzen 7 7700X looks like a good deal compared to the Core i7-13700K
AMD Ryzen 7000 processors continue to get cheaper in the US, and from different retailers, and not somewhere in one place. So, prices have decreased on Amazon, and at Microcenter, and on the Newegg site.
The best deal on the Ryzen 7 7700X is $345. The processor dropped 104 dollars from the official price. For comparison, for its rival in the face of the Core i7-13700K in the US they ask for $418.
The 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X has fallen in price more – by $ 132: the cost has decreased from the official $ 550 to $ 418. That is, there is just price parity with the Core i7-13700K.
The top 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X dropped $211 from $800 to $589. For the Core i9-13900K in the US, they ask for only a little more – $ 598.
These are prices on the Amazon site, but Microcenter has about the same discounts. At the same time, the Newegg and Microcenter sites have already fallen in price and the latest 65-watt Ryzen 7700 – by $ 10, but nonetheless. Recall that the Ryzen 7000 (without the X index) was presented only in early January.
