Intel Core i3-7100$117$115$115

Prices do not include shipping costs.

It is the Intel Core i7-7820X that gets the biggest drop in price, with 39% discount, which is huge! We can see that the competition is about to release new models soon. The high-end processors have little change in their cost, which will even increase for some. And for good reason, AMD has no equivalents for now. Indeed, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is as powerful as the Intel Core i9-7900X, but that does not go further.
