Black Friday is almost here and we're already busy rounding up deals on hardware we know you can use. It's not always easy to tell when an offer is genuine, so we're sharing at least one notable deal each weekday with our readers to help make shopping a little easier.

Today we've found a serious discount on the Intel Core i7-9700K processor. With high-end CPUs being in short supply, the i7-9700K offers an interesting option for building a fast yet modestly-priced system – even if it's not Intel's latest-and-greatest. We published a review on the Intel Core i7-9700K and associated series when it first released in 2018 and determined the generation of processors to be at the top of their game when it came to performance under mixed workload tests.

Intel Core i7-9700K: was $309, now $259 @Newegg

This is one of the lowest prices we've seen in the Core i7-9700K since it first released in 2018. If you want to lock in the final price of $259, you need to use promo code EMCGGGR24.

Based on Intel's Coffee Lake Refresh silicon, the i7-9700K offers 8 cores without Hyperthreading. The chip has a base operating frequency of 3.6GHz and a turbo frequency of 4.9GHz, though with most performance-focused motherboards it will be able to hold at its turbo frequency indefinitely.

You'll need an Intel 200 or 300 series motherboard with an LGA 1151 socket to support this processor.

Visit the Intel Core i7-9700K product page on Newegg for more details and checkout options. Be sure to use promo code EMCGGGR24 to redeem the offer.

    You can also buy the 9900K for just $299 now at Micro Center and there is a lot of stock available. Reply

    This still isn't a good price for an 8 core CPU with 8 threads. A more realistic price would be 175$-200$ and 10700k for 200-230$ tops.
    Zen 3 really moved the performance scale a lot.

    Buying this chip through Anandtech makes no sense.

    Anandtech has not given us a single current-generation GPU review. No 3080 review. No 6800XT review.

    It's clear that feeding Anandtech editors "carrots" through clicking these referral links to help them make a few cents is not working.

    It's time for the "stick." I'm not buying this chip. If I do, it's not going to be through an AT ref link either.

    It's barely been a few months since the wildfires decimated California (including its electrical grid), and it's also been barely a few months since affiliate links have been showing up.

    Your amazing "stand your ground" moralist campaign against a journalist stripped of the tools to do his job is the type of self-centered 2-inch foresight a toddler might exhibit.

    The whole "California wildfire" excuse is old and lame, it sounds like California is a post apocalyltic wasteland that no one can dream of a gpu review. Reply

    Must be the rioters and looters that's sinking CA right now. Reply

    Vitor tell that arrogance of yours to all those that lost, well, everything, when it burned to the ground. we also have no idea where ryan lives in california, for all we know, he could be one of those that lost everything, but could of very well been effected by it. Reply

    Why does a professionally run website dating back almost 20 years not have a backup plan in place? Tiny reviewers like gamers nexus have managed super detailed reviews on launch day yet anandtech cant get even a preliminary set of benches out in two months?

    Fire or no fire, this site is very poorly run if they are using an event from augest to justify their lack of content 2 years later.

    So its been a few months and still nothing? convenient excuse.

    How long does it take to ship those GPUs to another reviewer? Even if you had to move the test benches it could have been done by now.

    It does seem to be an extremely poorly run website now. Reply
