Intel Core i7-10700K vs. AMD Ryzen 7 3700X: Eight-core CPUs Struggling to Outperform Prime Day

You know things are tough in the CPU world when the best Intel and AMD chip deals for Amazon’s Prime Day are for previous generation chips, but that’s how it is this year. We discovered dueling deals for the previous generation of eight-core Intel and AMD chips, all of which have competed for spots on our best CPUs list in the past. That makes up a Prime Day battle between the $259 Core i7-10700K ($239) for graphics under 10700KF and the $279 Ryzen 7 3700X.

We don’t usually recommend buying previous generation chips, but all three of these chips are available (or close to) at lower prices all the time while we’re in the grip of an unforgiving silicon shortage. This makes them powerful alternatives if you are looking to upgrade an existing system, or even create a new platform with previous generation hardware.
