The Ryzen 7000 CPU prices have taken another tumble, almost dropping to 3rd Gen Ryzen MSRPs. The latest round of price cuts is coming from B&H. The online retailer has slashed prices by up to $130, reducing the 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X’s effective price to $569. The Raphael flagship is now $30 less than the Core i9-13900K:
The Ryzen 9 7900X is the odd one out: Slower than both the 13900K as well as the i7-13700K in gaming but costing more than the latter. Thanks to B&G’s discount, it can be snagged for $439, still $40 more than the 13700KF.
The Ryzen 7 7700X is sandwiched between the Core i5-13600K ($314) and the i7-13700KF ($399). The octa-core Zen 4 chip manages to come very close to the former but has no chance against the latter. The holiday sale makes it a solid midrange gaming CPU at $334.
Last and probably least, we have the hex-core Ryzen 5 7600X. Originally a Core i5-13600KF competitor, it has now been downgraded to a non-K i5 rival. Launched at an MSRP of $299, it can now be had for $239 on B&H:
