AMD’s Ryzen 7000 processors have gotten yet another price cut, making them substantially cheaper than rival Intel Core 13th Gen offerings. The updated prices have come into effect at Amazon and Microcenter, with Newegg to follow soon. Starting with the Ryzen 7 7700X, we got a price tag of $344.99, down from its launch price of $449. Its rival, the Core i7-13700K, is currently going for $418.
Higher up the stack, we have the Ryzen 9 7900X with a discount of $130, going for a price of $418, down from $549. It competes with the similarly priced Core i7-13700K, losing in gaming but winning in content creation.
Finally, the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X is stacked against Intel’s Core i9-13900K. We’re looking at $589, down from its $799 MSRP versus $598 for the 13900K.
Microcenter has similar discounts. Newegg and Microcenter offer better prices for the non-X lineup. The Ryzen 9 7900 is going for $429.99, $319.99 for the 7700, and $229.99 for the 7600. These are roughly the same as the prices for the non-K Raptor Lake parts.
