Amid increased competition from Intel’s 13th Gen Core family, AMD’s Ryzen 7000 CPU prices are falling daily. The 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X has been discounted by $130 to an all-time low of $419.99, placing it in the same price bracket as the Core i7-13700K ($421). Amazon and BH Photo Video have priced the Zen 4 SKU at $419, while Newegg has it priced at $448.
The previous-gen Ryzen 7 5800X is also going for an unbeatable price. From its launch price of $449, the octa-core SKU can now be had for a mere $219.99 at offline Microcenter stores. We’re looking at a hefty discount of $230 (41%).
Its pricier Ryzen 9 sibling is also going at an excellent price point. The $549 Zen 3 chip has been discounted by $230, making it cheaper than ever. The 12-core part can now be yours for just $329.
Finally, we have Zen 3D V-Cache. Featuring eight Zen 4 cores and 100MB of cache memory (including 64MB 3D stacked), the Ryzen 7 5800X3D is still one of the fastest gaming CPUs on the market. Microcenter is selling the X3D for an unbeatable $329. Pair it with a $100-150 motherboard and $75 memory, and you’ve got an RTX 4090-ready PC for just about $200.
