AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 CPUs just got a huge discount

In an unexpected twist, AMD’s latest and greatest processors are now on sale, and the savings are huge on some of the models.

All four of the Ryzen 7000 CPUs are discounted, making them highly competitive against Intel’s Raptor Lake chips.

AMD Ryzen 7000 processors discounted.

The first of the best Black Friday deals have already started rolling in across many U.S. retailers, but we must admit we didn’t expect to see price cuts on the Ryzen 7000 processors so soon. This doesn’t seem to be an official AMD discount, though, but many retailers have already lowered the prices, including and . Let’s see what’s up for grabs.

Newegg was among the first U.S. retailers to lower the prices of Ryzen 7000 CPUs, and the discounts are significant. If you’re shopping high-end, you can now pick up the excellent Ryzen 9 7950X for just (down from $699). The Ryzen 9 7900X is $100 cheaper, now priced at down from $549.

Gamers should definitely check out the Ryzen 7 7700X, with eight cores and 4.5GHz, which is now just , down from $399. Lastly, we have the midrange Ryzen 5 7600X with six cores, which used to cost $3299, but now is down to .

The prices on Amazon are roughly the same, so you can grab the Ryzen 9 7950X for , the 7900X for , the Ryzen 7 7700X for , and lastly, the Ryzen 5 7600X for . Best Buy is yet to follow up by lowering the prices, but it does have if you’re not shopping for the latest hardware.

It’s not often that the newest chips get discounted, and in the case of the flagship Ryzen 9 7950X with 16 cores, 32 threads, and a whopping 80MB cache, as well as clock speeds reaching as high as 5.7GHz, the price cut is huge — you’re saving $125 if you shop now.

These discounts might help AMD get an edge over Intel, although Intel Raptor Lake processors have also been discounted on , albeit not so massively. If you’re going for a budget-friendly, value-oriented build, AMD just might be the way to go this time around.

AMD, in general, seems to be aiming to improve its performance-per-dollar ratio instead of just pushing for raw performance numbers the way Intel and Nvidia sometimes tend to do. The upcoming AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX has been priced at a more reasonable level than Nvidia’s RTX 4080, and this could certainly help Team Red win some more of the market share in the GPU department. Let’s see if these AMD CPU discounts will help it compete against Intel too.

AMD may have just leaked the Ryzen 9 7950X3D release date

AMD may have confirmed the release date of the hotly-anticipated Ryzen 9 7950X3D, Ryzen 9 7900X3D, and Ryzen 7 7800X3D, but it doesn't look intentional. According to OC3D, AMD briefly published a launch date of February 14 for its new processors.

The launch date has since been removed from all listings on AMD's website, so this was probably a slip-up. However, February 14 isn't out of the question. AMD confirmed when announcing the processors that they would arrive in February.
