Intel Core i5-13600K vs. AMD Ryzen 5 7600X

Nov 24, 2022

The Core i5-13600K is the most affordable model in Intel's new Raptor Lake (K-SKU) range. We're very excited about the prospects of this CPU because the 12600K was a personal favorite of ours, so with the 13600K promising even better gaming performance, it should be a real winner. Intel lists an MSRP of $330 (per 1,000 unit price) and we're happy to report that retailers have been able to list it for $330. That makes the Core i5-13600K just $30 more expensive than the Ryzen 5 7600X and $70 che ...read more

Big Tech falls short in the first salvos of the Q3 earnings cycle
