        Ryzen 7 1700 vs. Core i7-7820X: 8-Core Royal Rumble  - Ryzen 7 1700 vs. Core i7-7820X: 8-Core Royal Rumble
Mon, Aug 14 2017 | 4:02PM | Filed under: CPU / Processors| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

"uying an 8-core processor was a wallet ripping affair prior to the arrival of Ryzen. In absence of competition, the Intel Broadwell-E Core i7-6900K was ridiculously overpriced at $1,050. Intel has had to make changes to its HEDT platform by releasing the Core i7-7820X in response to the 8-core/16-thread Ryzen 7 1700. However, I'm not quite sure Intel understands how competition works. Whereas AMD's solution launched with an MSRP of $330 and can be readily purchased online for as little as $290 today, Intel is still asking $600 for the i7-7820X. Worse still, the cheaper Ryzen 7 1700 can be happily paired with a $100 motherboard, while the pricier Core i7-7820X requires one that costs $220+."
