AMD’s midrange Zen 3 SKU, the Ryzen 7 5700X, is down to just $199, a lofty $100 drop from its $299 MSRP. The octa-core CPU is a downclocked variant of the 5800X with a TDP of 65W. Currently, the chip is sold out at Newegg but can be back ordered for the low price of $199.
Speaking of the 5800X, the 105W SKU is going for $238, a hefty drop of $210 or 46% off its release price of $449. We wouldn’t recommend going for the 5800X over the 5700X for gaming, as the performance is virtually identical.
Moving to the Ryzen 9 lineup, the 5900X is going for $349, a drop of $202 off its official $549 MSRP. The 5950X, with its 16 cores and 32 threads, is going for $479. For a previous-gen flagship that used to be the fastest gaming chip just a year back, that’s an excellent price.
