No, it's the lowest because it's not the current generation.

While I do believe AMD still on the lead, I'm not so sure about the zen3 pricing. $450 US in the 5800x against $380 on 10700k will be a tight race...

The chip is two years old and overpriced to begin with. This should've been the launch price.

Even the i9 9900k at Micro center is going for almost 50% off. https://www.microcenter.com/product/512 ... 78.9455954

Pay more get better service. LOL It's not hard to figure it out. If you know what you are doing you don't need return policies.

Still rocking a i7-4790k @ 4.7ghz. Maybe another year and I'll be hopping on 8core/16thread.
