Computer system builders rejoice you can buy the Intel Core i7-6700K from Newegg & TigerDirect without a bundle or hassle. That’s right the allusive i7-6700K is in stock and available to purchase in the US! I recently wrote about the lack of them in the United States with a follow up talking about the bundle Newegg required, who at the time were the only major US computer parts retailers selling the chips. You can buy an Intel Core i7-6700K for $369.99 at both retailers at the time of writing this.
This is good news for everyone interested in Intel’s new 6th Generation processors codename Skylake. Computer enthusiasts, architects and video editors are prime buyers for the high-end Intel Core i7-6700K 8M Skylake Quad-Core 4.0 GHz because it’s the the fastest 6th Generation chip released by Intel so far. The scarcity of Skylake i7 chips in the US had been driving prices up as well so more stock equals normalized prices.
Both Newegg and TigerDirect are limiting purchase to 1 per customer at this time. At $369.99 it’s only $19.99 higher than the $350 MSRP for the i7-6700K which is the best price the United States has seen so far. If you had been waiting to build a new Skylake desktop or had bought a Z170 motherboard hoping to plop the i7-6700K into it once available then now is your chance!
