AMD Ryzen 7 5800X3D Drops to $269 (-$180 Off), 12 Core Ryzen 9 5900X Down to $327 (-$221 Off)

AMD’s previous-gen AM4 CPUs are going for throwaway prices, courtesy of clearance sales. Many of these 8 and 12-core chips have been discounted to half their prices, making them the best-priced chips on the market. Three SKUs in particular caught our eye, the Ryzen 7 5700X, 5800X3D, and the Ryzen 9 5900X discounted by $100, $180, and $221, respectively.

The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is the most appealing out of the three, doubly so if you’re a gamer. More often than not, this chip is faster than the next-gen Zen 4 processors in gaming, courtesy of the 64MB V-Cache stacked atop its Zen 3 CCD. At its current price, you’re saving $180 on what is likely the lowest market price for this CPU.

The Ryzen 9 5900X is currently the best-priced content creation processor on the market. Priced at $327, this 12-core CPU was released at an MSRP of $549 roughly two years back. Overall, you’re getting a discount of over $220 on one of the best multi-threaded chips released in 2021.

Lastly, we have the Ryzen 7 5700X, an octa-core chip going for $190. Released at an MSRP of $299 last year, the 5700X has dropped to the sticker price of the 5600, a healthy $100 drop in just a year.
