I think the 13600k's ​​competitor is the 7700 because they're the same price.

Wdym? The 13600k is $329.99 and the 7700x is $399.99. It's supposed to compete with the 7600x. If you wanted an even closer competition, the 13600kf is $309.99 and is only $10 more than the 7600x.

Bruh, In Euro it's 409€ for the i5-1360K, 374€ if you go for the KF and 479€ for the ryzen 7 7700X (7th October 22). That's a big difference and if you include the board prices, Ryzen 7000 is way more expensive.

13600KF (without the onboard GPU) is just $310 USD right now. Much better price vs performance, compared to Ryzen 7700.

Bruh, Guys he is from Turkey so I want to tell you the situation. 7700x is 450 euros and 7600x is 350 so 13600k is right in the middle of 2 models with 390 euros. If you have no MB from 12th gen and u want the latest ddr5 tech. It is pretty competitive I guess.

Bruh, has many AMD ryzen 7700x/b650 motherboard combos live. The cheapest one I saw was $520. That makes the two about the same price.
