The price of the current AMD Ryzen 5000 CPUs has started to drop significantly as the Ryzen 7000 retail launch draws near.
AMD’s Ryzen 7000 debut is less than a month away, and the current product lineup has now dropped to less than $500 US. Nearly two years ago, AMD’s Ryzen 5000 CPUs were introduced, providing the most formidable multi-threaded and gaming performance against Intel’s roster in years.
The Ryzen 7000 series is set to be based on AMD’s latest AM5 Architecture which targets high clock speeds and core count. However the previous AM4 generation would still be an affordable option for low budgeted consumers despite the performance AM5 brings to the table.
After said that, let’s get you updated with the AMD Ryzen 5000 CPU pricing. The Ryzen 9 5950X, the top model, is now only $499.99 US, down from its MSRP of $799.99 US. Whereas the Ryzen 9 5900X with 12-cores at $349.99 US is a fantastic value if you want to save even more money while still getting lots of high-performance cores.
As we descend the lineup, we come to the Ryzen 7 5800X, which costs just $239.99 US, and the Ryzen 5 5600X, which has six cores, costs just $179.99 US. The links to numerous US retailers where you could purchase the chips are provided below.
