AMD Ryzen 7 7800X3D Drops to $370 ($80 Off): Bestselling CPU in the US and Germany

AMD’s Ryzen 7 7800X3D is down to its lowest price since launch, and gamers have taken note of it. The 2nd Gen X3D chip was released at an MSRP of $449, where it stayed for several months. However, as we enter the last few quarters of this cycle, prices have dropped across the board. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D is a bestseller at just about every retailer in the US and Germany, often joined by Intel’s Core i7-13700K and i9-13900K. We have the bestselling charts of five major CPU sellers compiled below to demonstrate this report.

First up, we have the CPU numbers from Mindfactory Germany (via TechEpiphany), where the Ryzen 7 7800X3D reigns supreme, with over 800 units sold last week. The Ryzen 7 5700X and 5800X3D come in at #2 and #3 with 530 and 430 units sold. The highest-ranked Intel chip is the Core i7-13700K at #$9 with 110 units sold. Mindfactory is the only retailer in our report where the Ryzen 9 7900X sold more than the Core i7-13700K/i9-13900K.

At Newegg US, the older AM4 chips hold the top two spots, followed by the Ryzen 7 7800X3D and the Core i7-13700K. The Ryzen 7 5700X comes in at #1, followed by the Ryzen 5 5600 at #2. The 7800X3D is currently going for $399 at Newegg, $50 off its MSRP. Other notable mentions include the Core i9-13900K at #6 and the Ryzen 9 7900X at #10.

Amazon is one of the largest online stores in most countries. Here, we see a repeat of the Newegg rankings. The Ryzen 5 5600X and 5800X come in at #1 and #2, respectively. Then, instead of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D, the Core i7-13700K steals the #3 spot, leaving the former at #4. The Core i9-13900K ranks sixth, while the 5800X3D ranks seventh. The 7800X3D is priced at $389 at Amazon, $60 off its MSRP.

The same trends are reflected at BHP with a few minor differences. The Ryzen 7 5800X3D is the top-ranked CPU at $317, followed by the Core i9-13900K and Ryzen 7 7800X3D at $551.99 and $389, respectively. The Core i9-13700K comes in at #4 ($395), R7 7700X at #5 ($342), R5 7600X at #6 ($249), and the 7900X at #8 ($410.59).

And finally, Microcenter, a DIY-centric retailer. Here, the Core i9-12900K, Ryzen 7 7700X, and the Core i7-13700K hold the top three spots, followed by the Ryzen 7 7800X3D at #4. The latter is priced at $379.99, the lowest we’ve seen. The Ryzen 9 7900X ranks #5, while the Core i9-13900K comes in at #6.

A couple of conclusions to draw from these lists. Firstly, Intel’s higher-end 13th Gen Core CPUs are selling quite well, with limited movement from the Ryzen 7000 non-X3D parts. The Ryzen 7 7800X3D seems to account for over 50% of AM5 sales. And the budget segments are dominated by older AM4 chips, most notably the Ryzen 5 5600 and the 5700X.
