Intel Core i7-13700K Review

Rating: 8.5.

KitGuru was impressed by Intel's Core i7-12700K which delivered plenty of stomp at a reasonable price. In today's review of the Core i7-13700K we expected this mid-range CPU might deliver more of the same but instead have been amazed to discover it can actually beat the mighty Core i9-12900KS.
