Cheapest historically, even cheaper than Newegg's BF deal @ $517. Cheaper still when combined with cashback / zippay / whatever.
In before Ryzen, Gen 10… Note this is a deal ONLY if you have a 300 series Intel chipset where upgrading to Zen 3 / Gen 10 makes no sense.
It should also have decent resale value down the track as people stuck on 300 series mobo with an a low end processor upgrades to this CPU.
Imagine, this is selling for only $100 more than a USED i7 7700k on ebay!!!
