    Still more than it is worth. Those 4 extra e cores are not worth an extra $225, vs the 12700k.

    16gb for 22 is a banging deal. Too bad I missed out on it.

    It was never $22, the author made a mistake, it is currently $82 though.

    Can confirm. Have my 12900k setup today and it's amazing, but that extra money was really more for my ego than any real utility I'll personally get from it lol
