    Erm... Anyone else hear standing pat... waiting to see how Ryzen shapes up?

    Seems like a bad time to buy.

    How so? I don't the release of something else somehow invalidates the performance of a 7700k at this price...

    Sure, but in the end you still get a great CPU and one is available right now.

    Regardless of how Ryzen performs, it's damned unlikely that the 7700K will be considered an underdog of any sort. If a high-performance 4C/8T CPU is what you need, and you need it now, then here ya go!

    Not about validation or invalidation. Sure, if one must have a new CPU today... by all means buy it at this price.

    But if you have a working PC that's a SB or better, then the 7700k isn't a big upgrade. A 6-8 core Ryzen may be worth waiting a wee bit longer (next month?). No?

    Put off that Intel for pricing the Broadwell 8-core at $1800. Rooting on AMD to bring some sanity back to moar cores.

    Stop with that drivel. Don't like it, don't buy it. AMD will not outperform Intel. Just get over it.

    Building a dedicated Sim racing PC, had intended to use a 7600k, but F it, 7700k inbound. I need to stay out of hot deals.

    Thanks OP!

    Drivel?

    Never said AMD would outperform Intel. Only that I'm hopeful they bring back competition soon. Also said buy now if one must.

    But some of us aren't Intel Fanbois. Get over it.

    Well it's another month. If not wanting to wait then buy now at this price.

    I've waited long enough, time to pull the trigger.

    Fry's has it for $295 for the next two days if you're signed up for their promo code deals.

    EDIT: Correction... Fry's has the non-K version

    Do we know its not? I thought the leaks were good.

    If Ryzen is at all competitive, I'm willing to spend a few extra bucks to support AMD as we desperately need the competition to Intel.

    I've been an Intel "fanboi" for so long now, simply because I've wanted high-end CPUs and that was my only option.

    AMD needs more than your pity purchase. Like everyone else I want competition but AMD, more than anyone else, should be firmly in the "I'll believe it when I see it" camp. To stay on topic this is a great price for a 7700k and I'm really trying hard to not buy a second one...

    Bought one. eBay gave me a $10 coupon. Nice deal and I'm not waiting for AMD to break my heart again. Looks like the wife is getting her C2D upgraded to a 2600K.

    incoming 7700K - good enough price to pull the trigger and not wait for Ryzen. Still in the Intel camp for a few years anyway.

    So tempted to get one of these ... even though I'm rockin' a perfectly good DELIDDED 6700k that seems to not want to go past 4.6ghz......

    2600K system still running at 4.5Ghz. Is this much of an upgrade??

    I think they are unloading these because rizen is around the corner and might be real competitive.

    "Unloading" one of the best consumer Intel CPUs that is only 1 month old? Sure, ok.

    It's just a sale. People are reading into this way too much.
