Don’t worry if you didn’t get some new silicon to unwrap this year. As it happens, there’s a fantastic deal on Intel’s previous generation Core i7-13700KF, bringing the CPU to its lowest price yet.

Amazon has discounted the Core i7-13700KF by 19%, bringing the price down to $319.99 in the US. Not only does this save you $75 off its usual cost, but it’s also currently lower than the i5-13600K’s MSRP and we consider that processor one of the best CPUs for mid-range PCs.

Since this is reduced on Amazon Global, pretty much anyone can get in on the deal. For example, it’ll cost UK residents just £317.06 while stocks last. Since it’s imported from the US, it may differ from local products and the marketplace says additional terms apply. This means it could be subject to import duties and taxes.

No matter where you’re buying from, this is a limited-time deal that won’t last forever. You’ll want to grab it sooner rather than later, and maybe even subscribe to Amazon Prime in order to get it quicker.

Intel Core i7-13700KF might be Team Blue’s previous 13th gen, but there’s a lot of life left in it yet. It has 16 cores split between eight dedicated to performance and eight to efficient tasks. Alongside 24 threads, 30MB L3 Cache, and up to 5.4GHz turbo frequencies, there isn’t much on the market that competes with it aside from the latest lineup.
